Lady Lake, Florida, USA

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Lady Lake, Florida, USA? 

Lady Lake, the northernmost town in west Lake County, owes its existence to the railroad which ran from Ocala to Leesburg in 1884. The railroad authorities wanted to name the new town Cooper, but the residents insisted on being called Lady Lake after a lake east of town. As legend has it, the lake was named by Indians for an unknown white woman they found drowned in the lake. It is also said that, from the air, the lake resembles a woman’s head.www.ladylakechamber.com/AboutLadyLake/
