Living in Largo, FL
What is known today at Pinellas County was inhabited by the Timucua Indians. Beginning in 1528, settlers met resistance from the tribe when they arrived on the land, and it wasn’t until 1823 when the first permanent settler arrived to the region. Count Odet Phillippe, a surgeon in Napoleon's army started the influx of settlers throughout the 1800s.
Because of the rich soil and central location, Largo quickly became the region’s top provider for citrus and was named the “Citrus City.” By 1905, the town became incorporated and in 1913 it became the first town in Florida, and the second in the nation to adopt a form of government that requires a town manager. After the Great Depression, the town was flooded with debt and returned to its state as a township. The city eventually made its way back to the top after World War II when veterans returned home and realized the life of luxury they could have in the Sunshine State.
