Polk County is located in the heart of the state of Florida and is convenient to Orlando and Tampa Bay. As of the 2010 Census, 602,095 people lived in the county, with the majority residing the Lakeland-Winter Haven Metropolitan Statistical Area.
It is believed that Polk County was first discovered nearly 12,000 years ago during the last ice age. Researchers believe that paleo-indians first found the area while following big game southward. After thousands of years of peace, European explorers discovered the land in the early 16th century.
Unfortunately, as the Indians did not have the same immunity to diseases, such as measles and Smallpox, as the European’s did, a large portion of them succumbed to their illness.
Since that time, the entire state suffered a tumultuous relationship with numerous countries. First the Spanish ruled the area, but in the late 17th century both the French and the British took turns ruling the peninsula. The American Revolution once again brought the state under Spanish rule, until finally in 1819 the area officially became a US territory.
Polk County was named after President James K. Polk, who was inaugurated the same day Florida became a state in 1945.
Don’t Let the State’s Past Become Your Present
The state of Florida may have had a fairly rocky and unstable past, but that does not mean that your future needs to be. At a certain point in time, some married couples will decide that parting ways is their best option. Fortunately, as Florida is a no-fault state, the only thing which both spouses need to prove in order to divorce is that their marriage is broken beyond repair.
