Lithia Florida History


Lithia Real Estate & History

Welcome to Lithia, Florida! Lithia was named for the lithium that was found to be in the water in 1904, but has a history of farming, sawmills, phosphate mines, and even turpentine manufacturing in the early 1900s..

Lithia Today

But it was in the late 1990s when Newland Communities purchased 3,000 acres to develop Fishhawk Ranch, that Lithia began to evolve as home to thousands of Floridians. From its tree lined roads to the 25+ miles of walking trails, the community caters to every age group. Homeowners can take advantage of the several pools, tennis, basketball, fitness center and even skateboarding. The Town Center offers small shops, a kids splash pool and concerts. A new sports complex has also been added. Churches, shops, banks and restaurants continue to spring up in the immediate area.

The Schools in Fishhawk Ranch are second to none, and there are two elementary schools within the community and the Middle School and High School are both nearby. There´s a library within the community as well. Parents need not go far to find a Daycare Center for the little ones. There´s one inside and just outside the community.

Homes range from the low $100s to over $1,000,000, and offers both gated and un-gated communities. Filling the need for all types of lifestyles, Townhomes and City Homes line the streets near the Town Center and Villas also offer carefree living.

Fishhawk Ranch has ranked high for many Military families over the last several years, and there is even a bus that makes the daily commute from Lithia to MacDill Airforce Base convenient.

Lithia is also home to Alderman Ford Park and there are trails nearby for horseback riding and other family activities.
