Located west of the City of Deltona, Eustis is a city of about 20,000 in Lake County, Florida. Its limits are defined by County Route 44 to the north, Eudora and Abrams to the east, U.S. Highway 441 to the south, and Lake Eustis to the west. The community, which covers a total area of almost 10 square miles, is part of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is the center for several small communities east of the county, including Cassia and Pine Lakes.
Settlement started in Eustis after the survey of the area was completed in 1875. This had been delayed by the American Civil War as the area had been opened up for homesteading since the 1850s. The community was already a busy port for steamers before the arrival of railroad in the 1880s. Eustis hasn’t always been the name of this city. It was first known as Highlands and then Pendryville before being named Lake Eustis after General Abraham Eustis, a Seminole Wars hero. “Lake” was dropped from the name in 1883, when the city was incorporated.
Eustis was home to 18,558 people as of 2010 census. The population had risen to an estimated 19,986 by 2015.
