Welcome to Jefferson County, Florida.

Report County Road IssuesJefferson County is located in the heart of "the other Florida," the Florida of rolling hills and stately oaks draped in wispy Spanish moss. Situated in the state's Panhandle, it is the only county that extends from Georgia on the north to the Gulf of Mexico on the south. Known as the "Keystone County," it is approximately mid-way between Jacksonville, Florida's northern-most Atlantic port and Pensacola, one of her largest Gulf ports. Monticello, the county's seat of government, is just 23 miles east of Florida's capital city of Tallahassee, and is fast becoming one of that thriving city's favorite "bedroom communities."
