Baker County, Florida

Baker County is a county in the U.S. state of Florida. As of the 2010 census, the population was 27,115. Its county seat is Macclenny. The county was founded in 1861 and is named for James McNair Baker, a judge, and Confederate Senator. In 1864 the Battle of Olustee was fought near Lake City in Baker County, the only major American Civil War battle in Florida. Much of the area was initially covered with pine flatwoods and cypress swamps, as was Columbia County to the west. Parts of both counties are included in Osceola National Forest. Local industries were in turpentine and timber productions, with sawmills constructed along rivers and waterways using water to transport lumber across the state.
