Star Lake is a housing community located in Lake City, Florida, comprised of single-family and multi-family residences. The modern-day history of Star Lake began many generations ago when the Native Americans migrated here. In the mid-16th century, Spanish explorers led by Hernando de Soto arrived in Tampa Bay. Soto and his team headed north hunting for gold and on the way met the Utina peoples who were part of the larger Timucua Native American tribe. Another tribe encountered by the Spanish were the Seminole who established a settlement in the area of modern-day Star Lake called “Alpata Telophka” which means "Alligator Village." In 1821, the Spanish gave up their claim over the Florida territory to the United States government after signing the Transcontinental Treaty. American pioneers and settlers began making their way to the new Florida territory, with some of these settlements formed near a Seminole settlement called Alligator Village. In 1823, the Treaty of Moultrie Creek required that the Seminole move to a reservation on the banks of Peace Creek. Settlers took over the area, and Alligator Village became the seat of Columbia County which was established in 1832.
