Lithia/Fishawk, Fl

•    The community has a rich history in agriculture, saw mills, and phosphate mining. In the late 1990s, Newland Communities purchased 3,000 acres (12 km2) to develop Fishhawk Ranch. Fishhawk Trails was developed by another company, and more public works and retail stores are currently in the development.

•    Around 1900, lithium was discovered in the waters of a spring, which resulted in the naming of the community to "Lithia"

•    Lithia is the closest community to the coordinates listed as the launch site by Jules Verne in his 1865 novel From the Earth to the Moon
