Oak Hill, Florida, a uniquely historical community located in the most southeastern point of Volusia County, is a fine place to live with many interesting and high end communities to choose from to call home. Oak Hill is a relatively small city, only home to about 1,500 residents according to a state census in 2004. This city continues to grow in its distinct communities and as a premier fishing location thanks to Mosquito Lagoon. This place is a revered location for professional fishing tournaments and many other local fun water sports activities. According to the history books, Oak Hill was home to some interesting historical activities, including the fact that it was the site for an Indian village called Surruque el Viejo near el Baradero de Suroc, which was seen on LeMoyne's maps in 1564. The Seminole Wars in the later 1700's chased away the few English Settlers and Timber lumber harvesters that came to call this location Oak Hill. By the time the Civil War had hit, Oak Hill was changing and becoming more economically stable: part time stores were opening, Salt works production had begun, and orange groves were taking form all over the small town.
The history of this small city makes for great stories and community pride for living here. The outdoor areas of this ecological paradise are also what makes this a superb location for the outdoorsy-types. Oak Hill is located on or near the Indian River and is a subtropical paradise, where bird life, sea life and human life is expected to prosper. Or if you prefer to be inside and not eaten by the variety of bloodsucking insects, then visiting one of the many shopping plazas or restaurants would be the best option for you.
