The Seminole area was first settled by non-Indian people in the 1840s. It was named for the Seminole Indians who were the original inhabitants. The word "Seminole" is said to have come from the Spanish term "Cimarron," which means "wild men." It was first applied to the Indians in the 1770s after they ran away from northern territories controlled by the British to escape slavery. The locals were involved in a series of wars in the early to mid 1800s to preserve their freedom and land from white settlers. The Seminole Tribe of Florida was not officially recognized until 1957. The city was incorporated in 1970.
