From Citrus to Horses
Named after a historic Timucua village named Ocale, dating back to the 16th century, the modern city of Ocala was established in 1849 around the site of Fort King (built in 1827 to separate the Seminole and European settlers).
The arrival of the railroad in 1881 fueled economic growth in and around Ocala. However, just two years later, a massive fire on Thanksgiving morning destroyed nearly all of the downtown area. An effort to rebuild started immediately with property owners encouraged to rebuild out of brick, stone, steel, and building materials other than wood.
Ocala was an important center of citrus production for the first 50 years after it was established, until the great freeze of 1895. Today, Ocala is one of only four cities in the entire U.S. that has the honor of using the title "Horse Capital of the World".
An equestrian paradise with over 400 thoroughbred farms and training centers, the equestrian industry is responsible for nearly 45,000 local jobs and well over $2 billion in annual revenue. Locally bread-trained horses have won both individual races in the Triple Crown series. In 1978, Affirmed (bread in Marion County) won all three Triple Crown races affirming the regions importance in the horse racing world.
