British Government House
Florida Stories: Pensacola
Originally intended to serve the British governor, the Government House became Pensacola’s first city hall, where all functions of civil government took place. The Garrison Kitchen and mess house for the British garrison were located nearby.
Built in 1877 this is the last known surviving Gulf Coast Schooner. It was the “pickup truck” of its day, as travel by boat was much easier than over the sand and swamps of the Gulf Coast. It is a National Historic Landmark today.
The Florida Historic Capitol Museum serves to illuminate connections between the people of Florida and their political institutions through programs of civic education, historic interpretation, and preservation.
