Description:

Bounded approximately by Tennessee Street, Alabama Street, Woodward Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Frenchtown is Tallahassee’s best-known black neighborhood. Following the Civil War many freed slaves migrated here and developed a thriving middle-class African American community. Only a few original structures remain, but preservation efforts focus on revitalizing homes and businesses.
