Escambia County was created on July 21, 1821. It was named for the Escambia River. Escambia County and St. Johns County were Florida's original two counties with the Suwannee River being the boundary between the two. The name "Escambia" may be derived from the Creek name "Shambia", meaning "clearwater", or the Choctaw word for "cane-brake" or "reed-brake".

Escambia County is the westernmost county in the U.S. state of Florida. The 2000 population was 294,210. The U.S. Census Bureau 2005 estimate for the county is 296,772. Its county seat is Pensacola.
