Located in the historic district of Pensacola, Florida, the Plaza Ferdinand VII is a National Historic Landmark for being the venue where the state of Florida was officially passed to the United States from the Spanish colonizers in 1821. General Andrew Jackson addressed a speech on the site, informing the locals that the area is already the Florida Territory.

The first territorial governor of Florida, which is also General Jackson, was also sworn in on Plaza Ferdinand VII. This is why a bust of Jackson can be found on the area.

The Plaza Ferdinand VII was built in 1815 by the Spanish government. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960. It was also listed on the book, ?A Guide to Florida?s Historic Architecture?.
