  County History  
 
 
     
 
 
  Escambia County was created on July 21, 1821. It was named for the Escambia River. Escambia County and St. Johns County were Florida's original two counties with the Suwannee River being the boundary between the two. The name "Escambia" may be derived from the Creek name "Shambia", meaning "clearwater", or the Choctaw word for "cane-brake" or "reed-brake".
