There is archeological evidence, from about 12,000 years ago, of the presence of Paleo Indians in the Gainesville area,
although it is not known if there were any permanent settlements. A Deptford culture campsite existed in Gainesville
and was estimated to have been used between 500 BCE and 100 CE
Note: CE stands for “common (or current) era”, while BCE stands for “before the common (or current) era”
The Deptford people moved south into Paynes Prairie and Orange Lake during the first century and evolved into the Cades Pond culture The Deptford people who remained in the Gainesville area were displaced by migrants from southern Georgia sometime
in the seventh century. These migrants evolved into the Alachua culture and they built their burial mound on top of the Deptford culture campsite
When Europeans made first contact in the area, the Potano lived in the area. They were descendants of the Alachua culture
people European contact diminished the numbers of native peoples (through disease, enslavement, war) and Spanish colonists began cattle ranching in the Paynes Prairie area in the 18th century. The Spanish ceded Florida to the US in 1821.
Gainesville was established in 1854 and named after Edmund P. Gaines The town of Gainesville was incorporated in 1869 and chartered as a city in 1907 The University of the State of Florida was moved from Lake City to Gainesville in 1906 and
its name was simplified to University of Florida in 1909.
