Here we are at the Dixie Hotel in Monticello Florida as shown in this Ebay seller's "deg123" postcard. He has it for sale here:

This is our Florida Jefferson County stop #13 of our 3142 United States counties we will be visiting on our Lazee Recliners Postcard tour!
Hope you are enjoying these visits. I sure am! I am learning so much about each of these counties!
This Florida county formed in 1827 out of Leon County.

*** Its county seat is Monticello.

*** It was named for the third President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.

*** The town Monticello was named after Jefferson's home in Virginia, Monticello. But they are pronounced differently. This town pronounces it:

*** This town has The Perkins Opera House that still features musical performances, theater productions and musicals.

*** Jefferson County is the only Florida county bordering on Georgia and the Gulf of Mexico.

*** Lots of Native American information here at the Letchworth-Love Mounds Archaeoloogical State Park. You will find preserves of Florida's tallest prehistoric Native American ceremonial earthworks mound 46 feet high.
