Touring Florida State Capitol

by Melissa Fordyce SPECIAL TO HERNANDO SUN

Want to learn about our state government and history? Instead of reading about it in a book, take a day to explore the Florida State capitol in Tallahassee.
On a recent vacation, we had the opportunity to spend a few hours in the state’s capital and it allowed my kids to experience a little of our state history as well as learn how our state came about.

If you think Florida is just all about strip malls, Disney and Orlando attractions, think again.

Located in north central Florida, just south of Perry, Steinhatchee depicts the old way of life in Florida. Steinhatchee (pronounced “Steen-hatchee”) is in the Big Bend, midway between Apalachicola and old Suwannee River. Its name “Steinhatchee.” was derived from the Native American “esteen hatchee” meaning river (hatchee) of man (esteen).
