Spanish explorers traversed what is now Alachua County as early as
1529. Gainesville and the University had their separate beginnings in
1853, when the first state college (the East Florida Seminary) was
founded in Ocala, and the Alachua County Commission decided to move
the county seat and build a new one on the route to be taken by the
Florida Railroad. The new city was named for General Edmund Gaines,
captor of Aaron Burr and victorious commander in the Second Seminole
War. The state college, after several moves, was merged with the
Florida Agricultural College of Lake City to form the University of
Florida, which moved to Gainesville the following year. The present
urban population of the city is more than 85,000.

Gainesville is a good place to live.
Not far from the northern border of Florida and a little more than an
hour's drive from either coast, the city has a pleasant climate.
Although it is predominantly warm, in summer the temperature
generally drops about 20 degrees at night, in winter there are short
but stimulating cold spells, and the seasons change. In spring, the
dogwoods are spectacular. The mean temperature is 70.1 (degrees F),
ranging from 57.7 in January to 81.1 in August. The average amount of
sunshine per day is nearly 7.75 hours and the annual rainfall is
49.97 inches. The coast is not so near that the area is in much
danger from tropical storms.
