History

The city was settled in the early 1820s as Clark's Ferry, evolving from a transportation hub between St. Johns River and the interior of present day Florida. The establishment of Fort Heilman during the Second Seminole War (1835-1842) boosted the population to 800.

Served by roads and riverboats, in the 1840s the name was changed to Middleburg. The economic staples of the area were timber, citrus, and farming. The city became the first Clay County seat in 1858.

The 4th Massachusetts Cavalry torched the town in 1864, during the Civil War. The city picked up again in the 1870s as river traffic and the citrus industry recovered.

The population numbered 700 in 1890. In 1895, a big freeze and lessening of the river trade caused the city to decline again. [4]
