Learn More About Lithia, Florida
Lithia is a beautiful community in Hillsborough County in the state of Georgia. It is a great place to live for those who appreciate serene, natural environment. The unincorporated community is a Tampa suburb offering a more family-friendly place for those working in the big city to call home.

It hosts the headquarters of the international mining division of The Mosaic Company.
Situated around 18 miles southeast of Tampa, Lithia was settled around the mid-19th century. The area had originally been inhabited by Native Americans, including the Tocobaga, Muskogan, Tomokan, Caloosa and Seminole. The first settlers arrived in 1846. James Alderman formed a ford on the Alafia River in 1848 – at the current location of Alderman's Ford Park - and supposedly boasted about 30,000 head of cattle by the beginning of the Civil War. The community took its name after the metallic element lithium discovered in the waters of today's Lithia Spring Major.

The fact that just about 8,000 to 9,000 people live here is, perhaps, the most important reason for the quietude.
Lithia includes the census-designated place known as FishHawk. Newland Communities acquired 3,000 acres of land in that CDP in the late 1990s to develop FishHawk Ranch.

FishHawk Ranch has a friendly hometown atmosphere where neighbors are moved to care for one another and families can grow closer. It is Hillsborough County's maiden certified green new-home community, offering convenient access to about 25 miles of scenic trails. Lithia's most popular neighborhood is FishHawk Ranch Phase 02.
