Jefferson County is located in the Panhandle region of Florida, east of Tallahassee. It is bordered by the state of Georgia on the north and the Gulf of Mexico on the south, the only county to border both. The eastern border is formed by the Aucilla River. Created in 1827, the county was named in memory of President Thomas Jefferson, who died the previous year. The total area is 637 square miles. As of 2010, the population was 14,761. Agriculture has been the economic basis of the county, but it is transitioning to more of a bedroom community, with many residents commuting to nearby Tallahassee to work. Some of the major products of the county are ornamental plants, timber, watermelons, pecans, beef, and dairy.
The county seat is Monticello, named for President Jefferson’s home in Virginia. The only city in the county, Monticello boasts a 27-block historical district, including the Perkins Opera House, built in 1890, and the old county jail, constructed in 1909, and now a museum.
