Visitors to Pensacola can explore the ruins of ancient wars at historic forts, walk in the footsteps of settlers and soldiers long past at historic sites, and stir up the occasional ghost at the lighthouse.
That’s why millions of people are drawn here every year to delve into our city’s vast and complicated history. There’s something about touring old military forts and historic homes that speak to us as humans. Sometimes, when we learn how our ancestors lived and survived, we learn something about ourselves too.
