What Bert Has To Say About Pensacola-Ferry Pass-Brent Metro Area

Because of the strategic location and harbor protection, Pensacola has a rich and varied history. It has “changed hands” among nations 13 times, with periods of French, British, and Spanish occupation. A lumber boom in the late 1800’s also left its mark on architecture and historic sites. Today the city has a strong military presence with the Pensacola Naval Air Station, headquarters of the Blue Angels. Educational attainment is fairly high for a town of this type, and the 9000-student University of West Florida adds a college town element.
