What is French Town?

Frenchtown was a historic, thriving African-American neighborhood following the Civil War. Post war, many freed slaves settled into this area, calling it their home. Here, they built a community center focused on commercial activity. Growing business began to predominate the area. Although only a few structures remain, there has been a passionate call to help aid and revitalize the area. Projects such as Urban Entertainment Center are working to make their way into the city. Frenchtown is bordered by Seventh Avenue and Alabama Street. This historic residential area is definitely worth the visit. If you are looking to live near this area, try looking for a Tallahassee apartment near Midtown, Terrace Park or Campus Circle. The place in this area will remain closer to the Universities and may be more affordable while allowing you the option to live next to French Town.
