Welcome to the City of Blountstown

Located in the Florida panhandle, the City of Blountstown offers a peaceful, rural lifestyle while enjoying the convenience of close proximity to services from neighboring larger municipalities.  Blountstown is only a few minutes from interstate 10 and less than an hour from the beach, Panama City, Tallahassee (the state capital), as well as the Alabama and Georgia state lines.  

 

In 1880, Blountstown became the County seat of Calhoun County and a courthouse was built near the river.  In 1903, another courthouse was constructed in new Blountstown.  This courthouse was used until 1973 when the new courthouse was constructed.  However, the old courthouse has been restored and is listed as a historic Florida landmark.

 

Fascinating residents of Blountstown have included the late Fuller Warren, former Governor of Florida, Bill Montford, Florida Senate District 3, as well as Everett Yon, a native of Blountstown who was honored at the University of Florida with the creation of Yon Hall.

 

City of Blountstown residents enjoy our beautiful rivers, Greenway Trail, friendly neighbors and hometown atmosphere.
