Lithia Florida MLS SearchLithia is an unincorporated community that continues to expand with every passing year. Originally Lithia was founded in 1847 when James and Roxanna Alderman forded the Alafia River and settled in the beautiful wilderness that would later become known as Lithia. The original name given to the area was Pelot, after the Pelot cemetery where Alderman's wife and son were buried. Pelot continued to grow with the arrival of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. The name Lithia originated in 1900 from the discovery of high amounts of Lithium in a small spring

Lithia today still retains many of the relaxed, rural characteristics that existed upon the community's foundation, yet still continues to grow.

Lithia Springs is a public park that provides a relaxing way to spend an afternoon or a weekend. More than just a local "swimming hole," Lithia Springs attracts many for its Aquifer, which supports the passing of over 24 million gallons of water every day. The water in Lithia Springs originates from a fault in the limestone a mere ten feet from the surface of the water. Because the fault reaches deeper under the surface of the ground, the water that fills the springs has an unusually cool temperature, usually ranging from 68 to 72 degrees. On the hottest days of summer, Lithia Springs is guaranteed to be one of the coolest places around! At Lithia Springs, people can find relaxation in observing the diverse wildlife that lives undisturbed, canoeing, rafting, swimming and camping!
