A Brief History of Tallahassee
Learn a bit about the history of Tallahassee and bring nuance to your understanding of the city. To truly understand the city as it is in the present, you must look to the past to see how prior events shaped its current landscape. Discover the roots that Tallahassee stands upon, and you will have a much broader picture of the city as a whole. There are many ways to do this. A few of them include:
- The Internet – Simply type ‘history of Tallahassee’ in to a search engine, and you’ll immediately see a myriad of informational documents to peruse. Scan a few until you find information that catches your eye. Perhaps you are interested in Tallahassee architecture and in the professionals who planned the city. Or maybe you want to understand why the city was built in the first place. No matter what piques your interest, once you’ve found a subject that speaks to you, look further. Then you’ll know where to spend your time.
- Once you’ve chosen a subject of interest, delve further. For example, if you are mostly interested in Tallahassee’s famous Florida State University and you’d like to learn everything you can about how it came to be, visit the campus. Stroll through the buildings, especially the libraries, and seek out books that help you paint an entire picture of the school. Visit the campus circus and talk with those who work there about how the program began. Stroll around the track and walk in the footsteps of those who have come before you. History is so much more than what we read; it’s present in what we experience, every day. Past events determine the future, which means that even now, in the present, we are shaping our future world.
- If you have a general interest in the history of Tallahassee, a local museum is a great place in which to lose yourself for a few hours. Take note as well that even among all of the historical documents, pictures and artifacts, there is likely an exhibit of local Tallahassee art or culture, proving that history is always being shaped.
- Don’t discount the power of the palate in teaching you about the history of a place. Find a Tallahassee restaurant that has been in existence for a long time, and ask the proprietors about what life in Tallahassee was like when they first opened the doors of the restaurant to the public. Learn firsthand how the city has changed and evolved.
