History
The first inhabitants of what would become Oak Hill were the Timucuan Indians, who lived along the shore from about 2000 BC to about 1,500 AD, when European settlers started to arrive. In 1564, the French illustrator, Jacques LeMoyne, made a map showing an Indian village named Surruque el Viejo near el Baradero de Suroc. The name "Oak Hill" seems to have been first used by seasonal northern loggers in about 1850.The City of Oak Hill was first chartered in 1927. Local government was based on a Mayor-Commission, with each commissioner functioning as head of a municipal department. The city was disbanded in 1930. The country was in a depression, and the city petitioned the government to inactivate the charter, which was granted. The city later petitioned the government in 1962 to reactivate the charter.Clarence Goodrich was the city's mayor from 1963 to 1989, the longest term any mayor has held in the state of Florida.
