Florida has the national distinction of having one of the only state Capitals that continually shies away from the limelight. The state's more ardent and flamboyant cities fighting tooth and nail for the media spotlight. Miami, Orlando, Tampa and Palm Beach on a constant marathon, vying for the gold ring that will inevitably stroke their ego. Tallahassee, the southern gentleman; dusting off his cotton Polo shirt, lighting up an America cigar and marveling at his children's horsing around.
The Tallahassee area was first settled by Spanish conquistadores. Their desire to bring the word of God to the native people of the state, and stop their pagan ways, incentives enough to erect 5 missions in the area.
Tallahassee's them had the acclaim, in 1538 under the expedition of Hernando de Soto, of being the first encampment/town in the continental United States to celebrate Christmas.
For almost 3 hundred years, Florida maintained its frontier demeanor; a southern wild west teaming with lizards, reptiles, and urban legends... Ponce de Leon and his crew scouring the land in search of the "Fountain Of youth."
Finally, in an expansionist coup, the 13 Colonies, the recent United States, bought the land from the Spaniards and started employing a quick regiment of soldiers to fight off the natives. During years, Tallahassee became the center of General Andrew Jackson's many skirmishes in the first Seminole War.
Tallahassee became the capital of the State after the end of that bloody squabble, when it was chosen, due to its location, by the second legislative session as the area's seat of power.
Since that period, and up until the Civil War, Tallahassee became the State's most powerful city, both politically as well as financially. It wielded the gubernatorial gabel while at the same time being the region's main epicenter for cotton production and the slave trade.
Tallahassee is located on the northern most point of Florida, on the head of what was once called "the Cotton Belt". There is an old saying in Florida, "the further north you go, the southerner it gets."
Tallahassee, as such, has more in common with its neighboring towns and states, than with the normal visage the tourists have of Florida. It is a landlocked city, surrounded by mature trees, oaks, hardwoods and antebellum landscaping.
Killearn Acres is a wonderfully family friendly, wholesome atmosphere, suburb of excellent middle schools, walkable neighborhoods, communal activities, amazing outdoor recreations, churches, restaurants, and retail. Brimming with moderately priced homes and a step away from the Florida seat of power.
