Frenchtown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Tallahassee, has long been a site of great change and development. The land has been home to Native Americans, the base of exploration by the Spanish conquistadors, the battleground for Andrew Jackson and the center of African Americans struggle for equality in the area. Today, Frenchtown is changing again, this time in an effort to preserve its vibrant history and culture. This is the story of a small community, a community that is essential to the black culture of Tallahassee, as well as the state of Florida as a whole. Julianne Hare masterfully narrates the story of Frenchtown in all its varied history, from the days of the conquistadors to the present-day efforts to raise the community to its former majesty.
