The Seminole Natives established a settlement they called Alligator Village (Alpata Telophka) at a time unknown to historians. What is known is that Hernando de Soto and his group arrived in Tampa Bay in 1539, at which time they came in contact with the Utina and Seminole. A little over one hundred years later in the 17th century, Spanish missionaries established Santa Cruz de Tarihica near present-day Lake City. When the United States took control of the Florida territory in 1821, the Seminole still lived in the Alligator Village settlement. The Treaty of Moultrie Creek in 1823 required the residents of Alligator Village to relocate to a Seminole reservation located on the banks of Peace Creek.
