Escambia County

Escambia County is located in Northwest Florida in the Panhandle bordering the Perdido River and Alabama on the west, the Escambia River and Santa Rosa County on the east, and the Gulf of Mexico. 

Escambia County, named for the Escambia River, was established in 1821 and was one of the first two counties in Florida along with St. Johns County which covered the eastern side. The derivation of Escambia is unclear, although it is probably of Indian origin. Tristan de Luna established a settlement at present-day Pensacola in 1559.
