Over six decades, the community comprised of citrus groves and cattle ranches between Lake Carroll and Lake Magdalene flourished and became the town known as Carrollwood.

Carrollwood's story begins in the 1890s, when Rev. Isaac Ward Bearss led a small caravan from Missouri to Florida and heled form a close-knit rural community. By the late 1950s, a developer named Matt Jetton bought more than 300 acres of land surrounding Lake Carroll and built the 925-home community that was given the name Carrollwood. By the 1970s, many of the remaining citrus groves in the areas surrounding the neighborhood gave way to new homes and businesses, and the Carrollwood name continued spreading north and west.
