The South Portion of Calhoun County was cut out in 1925 to form Gulf County. Wewahitchka was chosen as the county seat. The first county business was transacted in a local business house until this court house was built in 1927, and served until the county seat moved to Port St. Joe in 1965.
The first county commissioners were J.J. McDaniel, Chairman, H.E. Wish, S.F. VanHorn, A.D. Lawson, G.A. Patton and W.L. Mowbray. The first county judge was E.C. Lewis.
