Blountstown and Calhoun County

Blountstown is a town of about 2500 located in the Panhandle of North Florida. The town was named after John Blount a Seminole Indian chief who guided Andrew Jackson during his 1818 attack into Spanish Florida. Blountstown is the county seat of Calhoun County, which was established in 1838. Calhoun County was named for John C. Calhoun, a U.S. Senator from South Carolina who also served as Vice President under John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson.

Old Courthouse and the Historic District

Blountstown has a nice little historic district highlighted by the old courthouse which was built in 1904 using the Romanesque Revival style of architecture. When the county built a new courthouse, they luckily preserved this old one. The old courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Veterans Memorial

There is a nice memorial on the courthouse grounds honoring the men and women from Calhoun County who gave their lives defending the country.
