Pensacola Historical Museum

Jim says: As you might imagine, Pensacola, Florida being a major seaport on the Gulf of Mexico has an interesting and colorful history. It’s known as the City of Five Flags. Since its founding in 1523, the flags of Spain, France, Great Britain, The Confederacy and The United States have flown over it. Old Hickory” Andrew Jackson accepted Pensacola from Spain on February 22, 1820.

Yesterday I spent an enjoyable hour in this smaller, but very well done museum.

Like most seapots, Pensacola had a Red Light District.
