Many inhabitants of Apalachicola have said their name means "land of the friendly people".HistoryA British trading post called "Cottonton" was founded at this site on the mouth of the Apalachicola River. Gradually after acquisition by the United States and related development in Alabama and Georgia, it attracted more permanent European-American residents.
