Alturas and Lake Garfield are located in the heart of central Florida. Founded in the early 20th century, the area, nestled quietly among oaks, yellow pines, and beautiful natural lakes, attracted land seekers and developers. Alturas was projected to be the next "Capital of Florida Agriculture" with its roads, local hotel, multiple churches, and a center for the emerging Florida citrus industry. The anticipated metropolis never materialized, but it has endured the test of time as a wonderful location to enjoy a country lifestyle and raise children. Lake Garfield was established when the Roux family opened a large sawmill complex and created jobs for hundreds of employees. Many tenant houses, built by the sawmill, stretched along its streets. The decline of Lake Garfield began with the 1942 closing of the Roux Crate and Lumber Sawmill after the stands of yellow pine had been logged out. The progeny of the early arrivals still resides in the community.
