Founded January 12, 1876

Lakewood Drive, part of old Seminole Indian trails, led to Fort Brooke and "Pease Creek". In 1876 Judge Joseph Gillette Knapp of Wis. settled and named Limona after citrus trees left by the Spanish. In 1877 the Elgin Watch Co. formed Limona Park Ass'n for a winter retreat. Surveyor E. E. Pratt wrote the land was "best in Florida... high, dry... beautiful lakes... clear soft water". Knapp established this cemetery, a church, school and in 1878 a post office. In 1881 he proposed Tampa Historical Society.
