History & History Related Items

Largo history:

Largo was settled between 1848 and 1871 when the seven McMullen brothers came from Georgia. The grew citrus trees and ranged cattle. Some members of the family are in the area with some living in one of the original homes here in Largo.

In 1886, the railroad refused to build a depot unless the settlement had a name. Some wanted to use the name of the daughter of Gideon Blitch, who was a local resident. They would name it Luluville. But, in the end, the name became Largo after the large lake in town. The lake was drained about 50 years later. Some also believe the town was named for Largo, Scotland, where a number of the early settlers came from.

Largo was incorporated as a town in 1905.
