Another essential point is that this park is full of history. For those who are history buffs, this might be the park for you! In 1823, this area was designated as part of the Seminole Indian Reservation; despite this, it was never used as a reservation. Fast-forward to 1910, this land was settled on and for many years it served as a home to John and Louise Driggers, as well as later serving as a home for the Bronson family. It was not until 1973 when this land was purchased by the state that Lake Louisa State Park came into the picture. In 1974, this land became a state park and was later opened to the public for everyone to enjoy in 1977.
