General Note

  • Construction was started on Florida's first railroad (incorporated February 10, 1834) in 1834 and completed in 1836, from Tallahassee to Port Leon (22 miles). Caption accompanying Francis Count de Castelnau's drawing reads, "Railway depot at Tallahassee. Florida already has a railroad, which although short renders great service. It extends from the capital to Saint-Marck on the Gulf of Mexico about 7 leagues away. It crosses such a very deep sandy region that, before construction, it was scarcely possible to cross it on horseback. It serves chiefly to transport cotton from the interior to the sea."
