History & History Related Items

Founded in 1831, Apalachicola was a major center for shipping, particularly cotton. By the middle of the century, the town has many warehouses and large streets to accommodate the loading and unloading from large wagons. The river brought steamboats filled with cotton and other products. Once the railroad came into the area, lumber became a major industry. Many lumber mills were built in the late 1800's as the large cypress forests of the area were harvested. Later, oysters and other seafood also became important to the area economy.
