Behind my car you see the Constitution Center at Port St. Joe, Florida. Port St. Joe came into being in 1829 and this is where the constitution of Florida was created. Also Port St. Joe was the first capital of Florida. It was moved from here because the mosquitoes were so populace. It was thought that it would be better to move the capital inland away from the water and have less mosquitoes. Thus Tallahassee became the capitol of Florida.
