Looking Back at Okeechobee
Named from a combination of the Hitchiti Indian words "oki" (water) and "chobi" (big), Okeechobee (or Okeechobee City as some locals refer to it) is located just north of the lake that shares its name. The area around the lake saw some of the most devastating effects from the 1928 Okeebhobee hurricane, which was the first recorded Category 5 hurricane in the North Atlantic and one of the most deadliest hurricanes ever to hit the U.S with some 2,500 souls lost.
Okeechobee was the site of the Battle of Lake Okeechobee during the Second Seminole War, as local Seminole warriors were fighting from forced relocation to the U.S. state of Oklahoma. Colonel Zachary Taylor would claim victory in the battle and later go on to become the 12th President of the United States.
In the early 20th century, Okeechobee became the seat of government in Okeechobee County and gained a reputation for being a central shipping point for railroad cars full of everything from winter vegetables to cattle, poultry and fish. Today, the population of about 6,000 residents call Okeechobee home and tourism plays in important role in the city as visitors flock to the area to enjoy fishing in the lake that shares the cities name.
