Leon County
 Originally part of Escambia and later Gadsden County, Leon County was created in 1824. It was named for Juan Ponce de León, the Spanish explorer who was the first European to reach Florida. During the 1850s - 1860s, Leon County was a "cotton kingdom" and ranked 5th out of all of Florida and Georgia counties in the production of cotton from the 20 major plantations. 

The principal place in Leon County is Tallahassee, the county seat and state capital.
The community name derives from Muskogean for "old town" or "old fields"
