The Tallahasseean began publication on June 1, 1885. Soon thereafter, it merged with another Tallahassee newspaper, the Land of Flowers. Edited and published by R. Don McLeod, it was called the Weekly Tallahasseean and Land of Flowers. Between 1888 and 1891, the paper assumed the title of the Weekly Tallahasseean . New ownership seems to have occasioned the name change. The Weekly Tallahasseean was published first by John G. Collins and then by John C. Trice. Some accounts suggest that the Weekly Tallahasseean was continued by the Tallahassee Weekly Capital in 1905. In any case, the Weekly Tallahasseean appears to have ceased publication in that year.

Because there are several runs available in Florida libraries and because Tallahassee is the seat of Florida’s state government, the Weekly Tallahasseean is frequently consulted by researchers.
