USDA Boundary Details

Marion County, located in the northern part of Florida, was established on March 14, 1844. It was named in honor of General Francis Marion, a Revolutionary War hero known as the "Swamp Fox." The county has a rich history, with evidence of Native American settlements dating back to 10,000 B.C. The early inhabitants were the Timucua Indians, who were eventually replaced by the Seminoles.

In the early 19th century, European settlers began to arrive in the county, leading to tensions with the Seminole tribe. The Second Seminole War (1835-1842) took place within the area, and Fort King, a U.S. Army post, played a significant role in the conflict. Ocala, the present-day county seat, was founded near the site of Fort King in 1846.

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Marion County became a center for agriculture, especially in the cultivation of citrus, watermelon, and, later on, thoroughbred horse farming. Its population grew rapidly throughout the 20th century, with an increase in tourism and development of retirement communities.

One fun fact about Marion County is that it's known as the "Horse Capital of the World" due to its thriving thoroughbred horse industry. The county is home to numerous horse farms, and several world-class champion racehorses have been bred and trained in the area, including the 1978 Triple Crown winner, Affirmed.
