Apalachicola, February, 2009.
Apalachicola is a city in Franklin County,
Florida on US 98 about 80 miles southwest of Tallahassee. "Apalachicola"
comes from the Apalachicola tribe and is a combination of Hitchiti
Indian words "apalahchi," meaning "on the other
side," and "okli," meaning "people".
In original reference to the settlement, it probably meant "people
on the other side of the river." Many inhabitants of Apalachicola,
however, choose to translate the name of their town as "land
of the friendly people."
