Driggersville Plat 1872

In 1872 a post office was proposed at Driggersville, which was never granted. This pre-dates Longwood. The application notes that it existed along a mail route between Mellonville (10 miles northeast) and Clay Spring (Wekiva Springs), which eventually led to Apopka.

The location was 1 mile from the Little Wekiva River and two miles from Solder Creek. It was near the vicinity of EE Williamson Road and I-4.

The pioneer here is Edward F. Driggers, who was filed for a homestead in February 1869 near Rangeline Road and Church Avenue.


The application says there was no town there, but the post office would serve about 75 people.
