Lake-Sumter State College
About Our College
The original campus site in Leesburg has served multiple purposes over time. Silver Lake, which is adjacent to the original campus, was a Pre-Columbian site known to indigenous Floridians before the coming of Columbus to the New World. It was originally part of the Timucuan Indian territorial range and was known to the Seminole Indians who inhabited the area. The area was later home to turpentine mills, farming, citrus groves, winter tourists and land sales.
