Thank You for Celebrating Escambia County’s 200th Anniversary with Us!

Escambia County turned 200 years old Saturday, July 17, 2021. Created on the same date in 1821, Escambia and St. Johns counties were Florida's two original counties, covering the entire territory within modern state boundaries. The Suwannee River was the border between Escambia and St. Johns counties, which follows a winding path from the northern border of the state to the Gulf of Mexico. Essentially, the Escambia County government had jurisdiction over the "panhandle" and "big bend" areas, and St. Johns over the remainder of the entire state.
