History


Few historic sites in Florida have witnessed as much history as The Grove. For nearly two centuries, the people connected with this place have figured prominently in the moments that defined Tallahassee and Florida history.

Their collective story speaks directly to the American experience. As public servants, preservationists, and entrepreneurs, the many notable residents of The Grove have left an indelible mark on Florida and our nation’s history.

 

As a politician and businessman, Richard Keith Call (1792 - 1862) influenced the development of the Florida territory and laid the groundwork for statehood.

Ellen Call Long (1825 - 1905) took over control of The Grove from her father in 1851 and worked behind-the-scenes to shape Florida’s image before the rest of the world. 

Reinette Long Hunt (1873 - 1940) embodied the entrepreneurial spirit of her forbearers and engaged in several strategies to produce income.

As public servants and preservationists, LeRoy (1909 - 1991) and Mary Call Collins (1911 - 2009) created a legacy that continues to shape Florida today.
