Gorrie Square

square, walk, monument

Here you will learn about Apalachicola’s early development patterns, which focused on its neighborhoods. You can also visit Dr. Gorrie’s gravesite and the impressive monument dedicated to his achievements in 1900 by the Southern Ice Exchange.

Explore one of Florida’s oldest churches, the historic Trinity Episcopal Church, which Dr. Gorrie assisted to found Apalachicola’s first church, completed in 1838. It was assembled from “cut to order” materials in White Plains, New York, and has changed very little during its almost two centuries of service to the community.
