The town is called St. Francisville. It was established in 1807 and became capital of the Republic of West Florida in 1810. The Republic of West Florida was founded by British settlers who opposed the Spanish rule in the region. It existed only 74 days before it was annexed by the United States and became part of Louisiana.
