Apalachicola—Territorial Period Hub of Commerce
Catherine Greene from the Apalachicola Historical Society discusses the history of Apalachicola, which was a hub for commerce during the territorial period and continued to play a large role in the economy of the Big Bend area into the 20th century.
The Knott House Museum
Although its history can be traced as far back as the Civil War when the Emancipation Proclamation was announced, the historic house is now restored to its early 20th-century appearance when the house was occupied by politician William Knott and his wife, Luella. Mrs. Knott composed verses about many of the items in her home which are still on display today. The Knott House is currently closed to the public for historic preservation work.
