Mayor Brenda Ash - City of Apalachicola Florida

Welcome to Apalachicola!

Our beautiful city is one of the oldest port cities in the state of Florida. Established in 1831, Apalachicola boosts a rich and unique past. Glimpses of that by-gone era can still be viewed today through our charming shops, inviting parks, historic museums and acclaimed restaurants serving fresh locally-caught seafood. Additional maritime life is evident through picturesque Scipio Creek which flows into a vast ecosystem where the vital Apalachicola River meets the Apalachicola Bay, creating a natural and pristine estuary that eventually flows into the Gulf of Mexico.

This special place I call home is truly a gem and I am honored to serve as its first female mayor, a position I do not take lightly. As mayor, I am tasked with serving my fellow residents, working alongside my friends, and being an ambassador for our visitors. These are roles I eagerly embrace for I am proud to be a representative of such a remarkable city.

The name “Apalachicola” is said to mean . . . “land of friendly people.” Living and working together with my fellow Apalachicolians, I can completely vouch for the accuracy of that label and as our city continues to grow and prosper, it is my desire that the same inviting charm that intrigued you to live, work, play and visit here, will seep into your spirit and keep you here.

Again, welcome to our historic city.


Mayor Brenda Ash
