Spanish Missions in Colonial Florida

They are not as famous as Spanish Missions in Texas or California, but Florida’s network of missions predated those in other parts of North America and were quite impressive. Colonial Florida in the 1600’s hit a high point in terms of economic development – a high the areas that currently make up the State of Florida would not see again until the 1800’s. This week on The Florida History Podcast, we discuss these missions with a focus on the beautifully reconstructed Mission San Luis de Apalachee in Tallahassee.
