Lake City was originally known as Alligator Town and was the first home of the University
of Florida. The name of the town was changed to Lake City in the mid-1800’s. The
North Central Florida area is rich in history, wild life, and natural resources.
The area has many natural springs, most open to the public.
Lake City is about an hour from Jacksonville, 45 minutes from Gainesville and about
an hour and a
half from Tallahassee. Centrally located, it is an ideal place for business and commerce
and a great community in which to live. Lake City has an airport with an 8000 foot
runway, rail service, and an active local government. Three hospitals are located
in the area, including a large VA medical center.
