Gorrie Square

square, walk, monument

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

Nearby, explore one of Florida’s oldest churches, which Dr. Gorrie helped found. The historic Trinity Episcopal Church was 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.
