The Town of Havana is located 14 miles north of Tallahassee in beautiful Gadsden County, Florida.

tobacco. The Town was incorporated on December 5, 1906. The name "Havana" was proposed by a local schoolteacher, James Mathewson. Shade tobacco, used in fine cigars, was the major crop in the area at that time.

Over the years, tobacco crops dwindled and now the Town of Havana is well known for its many Antique Shops, Art Galleries, and Specialty Shops.
