Living in Leesburg, FL
Leesburg was settled by the extended Lee family in 1857, making it the oldest city in Lake County. Calvin Lee is credited with giving the city its name when, buying merchandise in New York City, he told his suppliers to “bill his goods to Leesburg.” Leesburg was an important city for watermelon farming in the early 20th century and citrus farming near the end of the century until unpredictable weather conditions led growers to move farther down the state.
Today Leesburg attributes its rapid growth and development to the tourism industry in nearby Orlando. The city has also become an increasingly popular retirement destination in recent years, attracting elderly residents from northern states who don’t want to pay the high prices found in South Florida.

Stetson University and Central Florida Community College are also located in the area, making a central Florida education very accessible. Leesburg is also home to Beacon College, which offers a tailored education to students with ADHD and other learning disorders.
