Russwood Estates is an upscale neighborhood located in Lake City, Florida. The city was incorporated in 1859 after the establishment of Columbia County. Before the Spanish came to the area of modern-day Lake City it was controlled by a few Native American tribes, one being the Seminole who established a settlement called “Alligator Village.” During the Spanish occupation, they founded many missions throughout Florida, with the Santa Cruz de Tarihica built just west of the Seminole village. The Santa Cruz de Tarihica was used by the missionaries to establish an agricultural base and to create a peaceful report with the local Native tribes. Spain lost Florida to Britain for a while, then Spain regained its control over Florida for 40 years until economic problems forced the Spanish government to relinquish power over to the United States government through the Adams-Onis Treaty of 1821. Eventually, the Seminole signed a treaty that required them to relocate to a reservation on the banks of Peace Creek. Alligator Village then became the county seat of Columbia County and was incorporated in 1859 as Lake City.
