Reproduction historic map of Lake City, Florida published in 1885. The town once known as "Alligator" changed its name in 1859 to Lake City. It is said that the wife of the town's mayor refused to hang her lace curtains in a place called "Alligator". In 1864, the Confederate and Union armies clashed at a site just fifteen miles east of Lake City, in what was to be the only battle during the Civil War that was fought in Florida.

An inset illustration of the "Borum House" appears centered at the top of the map.
