Pensacola, Florida, has a long, rich history dating back more than four hundred and fifty years. In fact, in late 2015, beneath the wreckage of a bulldozed home in downtown Pensacola, a shard of Spanish pottery was discovered, proving Pensacola was the site of Don Tristán de Luna y Arellano’s colony. However, the city’s wild heritage not only includes the Spanish, but also the French, the British, and the Confederate States of America. In fact, it is called “The City of Five Flags” in recognition of the five governments which have ruled it throughout its history. Today Pensacola is the county seat of Escambia County and is home to a seaport between Santa Rosa Island and the Gulf of Mexico. It is also in proximity to U.S. Naval Air Station, and a multitude of exciting destinations sure to appeal to vacationers, investors, and homebuyers seeking a new home in paradise.
