Jobs in Ocala, Florida, United States

Ocala, the seat of Marion County, is situated in Northern Florida. The city has a rich history and is believed to be located near what was a major Timucua village, namely Ocale. The area was also home to the various Native Americans, including the Creek People and the Seminole people, as well as various other settlers.

The greater area of Ocala, was predominantly a plantation and agricultural area, which was encouraged by the arrival of the railway system. In the 20th Century, the city became the “horse capital of the world” as a result of its expansive breeding programs of thoroughbred horses.
