Holmes County is located in the Panhandle region of Florida, north of Panama City. The county is bordered by the state of Alabama to the north, the Choctawhatchee River to the west, and Holmes Creek to the east. The origin of the name is unclear; some believe it was named for a half-breed Creek Indian chief who lived in the area around 1815, but others maintain that the county is the namesake of Thomas J. Holmes, a settler who moved to the area from North Carolina about 1830. The county was established in 1848. The population was 19,927 as of the 2010 census. There have been four different county seats: Hewitt’s Bluff, Pittman’s Ferry, Westville, and finally Bonifay since 1905.
