Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

Tallahassee was hit by a yellow fever epidemic in 1841 which lasted from May through October. Estimates of deaths ranged from 230 to 400, although the exact number is not known. Mrs. Rebecca Scott was one of the victims and her grave in Old City Cemetery is located in a walled plot which contains the graves of at least two other victims from her family.
