Monticello Logo Block
Only 28 miles northeast of Tallahassee, the Northwest Florida town of Monticello is graced by historic buildings, including a circa-1890 opera house still in use today. A courthouse square dominates the center of compact Monticello, surrounded by family-owned cafés and shops, and spectacular live oak canopies, draped with Spanish moss. Saturdays are particularly special as area farmers and ranchers – corn, peanuts, cotton, dairy, cattle, etc. – still come to Monticello to shop and socialize. Oh, and there is this: Those curious about the supernatural are advised to make a stop in Monticello, named by ABC-TV as the "Most Haunted Small Town in the U.S."
