Alachua County History / Alachua County Inmate Search

The word Alachua is an Indian word meaning “sink,” which described the land in this area in the 1800s. The county was once home to the Seminole Indians, who often made raids on the neighboring houses. In the early 1800s, a settlement was established in the area known as Newnansville. In 1828 buildings were established, including a store and a post office, so homes began to move into the area. Roads were built, giving more access to settlers. The county is home to the Gainesville Jail. To conduct an Alachua County inmate search, click here.
