The capital of Florida.

Tallahassee (CL-116) - a Fargo-class light cruiser - was laid down on 31 January 1944 at Newport News, Va., by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co. However, as the collapse of Japan became apparent, the contract for her construction was cancelled on 12 August 1945, and her hull was scrapped on the ways.
