Moving to Ocala
Ocala is a popular tourist destination in Florida's Marion County. The city is home to a mid-size population, although its strong tourist industry sees it welcome many more people throughout the year. A large number of thoroughbred horse farms, equestrian venues and horse riding trails have earned Ocala official status as the horse capital of the world.
The History of Ocala
According to archaeologists, indigenous people called the Ocala area home as far back as 6500 B.C., with the Timucuan tribe being one of the many native groups to inhabit the land. Through the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Ocala was a popular home base for Native Americans and freed slaves. In 1827, the U.S. government established a fort in the area, which would later evolve into the community of Ocala.
The modern-day city of Ocala was founded in 1849, named after the native Timucuan word "ocali," meaning "big hammock." Ocala grew quickly when the railroad was built through the town in 1881, but its growth was halted when a large fire tore through the downtown area two years later. Refusing to surrender, the citizens rebuilt their city with hardy brick, steel and granite, and Ocala continued to grow and evolve into the thriving community it's known as today.
Ocala's unemployment rate lies just below the national average, with many opportunities in the city's agricultural and manufacturing industries, especially in the vital thoroughbred horse sector. Ranching, horse-breeding and equestrian venues all provide a number of jobs in Ocala. The city also has a variety of light manufacturing firms producing products as diverse as auto parts, household goods and electronics. These sectors have helped Ocala post modest but positive job growth in recent years. The diversity of businesses in the city has helped strengthen Ocala's economy.
