Facts for Renters

  • Alachua is an Native American word meaning sink. The city got that name because of how the local Seminole Indians viewed the landscape.
  • Before Alachua was established, there was a town called Newnansville. By 1826, stores and a post office had emerged in the area, named after two brothers who settled in the area. The stores were renamed to Newnansville after local war hero Daniel Newnan. In 1884,  a railroad was built that pulled business away from Newnansville and caused settlers to move more south, creating Alachua. By 1905, Alachua was officially a city. Hotels, businesses and banks popped up in the area, becoming a popular destination for local settlers and people passing through.
  • Today, Alachua is known as "The Good Life Community". Many historical buildings still sit in downtown Alachua - there's even a historical district. Farmers also still come to Alachua on Saturday to sell their crops. Despite being a prosperous city, there's still a small town feel to the area.
