Florida was acquired by the United States from Spain in 1821. But in order to become a full-fledged state, Florida needed a constitution. The town of St. Joseph, later renamed, Port St. Joe, had enough influential people to get Florida's constitutional convention held in their town. This museum tells the story of how this all happened. It also includes information about other important historical events in this area in the 19th Century, including St. Joseph's competition for supremacy with the neighboring town of Apalachicola
