Encyclopedia Article for Lakeland

city, Polk county, central Florida, U.S., about 30 miles (50 km) northeast of Tampa and some 10 miles (16 km) west of Winter Haven. It was founded in 1883 by Kentucky businessman Abraham Munn, who purchased a large plot of land near the newly built railroad. The community was named for the many lakes in the area, several of which are now within city limits. The railroad contributed considerably to its growth. By the late 1880s, strawberries were a major crop, and a variety of seedless grapefruit had been developed there.
