The History of Monticello
Named after the estate of Thomas Jefferson; Monticello is (not surprisingly) the county seat of Jefferson County and located about 20 miles east of Tallahassee. It has the odd distinction of being the only county that stretches from the Georgia state line to the Gulf of Mexico. Jefferson county is one of the oldest counties in Florida and dates back to pre Florida statehood.
A small working town of less than 3,000 people, it has deep agricultural roots and primarily serves as a supply center for the surrounding farms (very similar to Homestead in S. Florida). In the later part of the 20th century, the greater Jefferson County region produced near 80% of the world's supply of watermelon, in addition to pecans.
Many of the homes and buildings on its Main Street date back to pre-Civil War era and include an opera house (c. 1890) and the county courthouse (c. 1906).
Monticello is also home to several Indian mounds which were constructed by Native Americans by piling soil, rock, or other materials in an attempt to elevate an area that would later be used for ritual or burial purposes.
