Description:

Leave the hassels of your hectic life at the county line. You're now in an area where folks still stop to chat, smile and wave at passersby. Jefferson County offers a rare glimpse into Florida's antebellum past with its stately old homes and tree lined streets. Monticello, the county seat, is a near perfect example of a "walkable community".  Its beautiful homes and public buildings represent the best collection of 19th century architecture in the entire state of Florida.  The Monticello Historic District encompasses twenty-seven city blocks. Perusing the moss-covered, oak-lined streets takes one back to a gentler time when the prosperity of the region lured families to build the ornate, detailed antbellum homes that still stand today.  Many of these homes are private residences, a few are open to the public, and a few have seen new life as bed and breakfast establishments. Jefferson County's natural beauty is unspoiled.  It offers thousands of pristine, wooded acres, gently rolling hills, ponds, lakes and the jewels of the county: the Aucilla and Wacissa Rivers, Lake Miccosukee, St Marks National Wildlife Refuge and the St. Marks River.  Both the Aucilla and Wacissa Rivers have been offically designated as part of the Florida Trail (one of eight National Scenic Trails in the United States providing paddling, hiking and backpacking opportunites).  Jefferson County also offers some of the best hunting for quail, deer, dove  and wild turkey in the region. Come and experience the perfect combination of country living and small town charm. Explore Jefferson County today!
