Marion County is located south of Gainesville in north central Florida. Created in 1844, the county is named after General Francis Marion, a hero of the Revolutionary War from South Carolina, as many of the area’s early settlers came from that state. As of 2010, the population was 331,298. The total area of the county is 1,663 square miles, and most of the area is made up of rolling hills. The county is famous for producing champion race horses. More than 44,000 jobs exist through breeding, training, and support of the equine industry.

The principal city and county seat is Ocala. The city is named for a Native American village, Ocale, visited by–and possibly wiped out by–Hernando de Soto’s Spanish expedition in 1539. In 1827, Fort King was built nearby to protect settlers from the Seminole tribes. In 1844, the fort was used for the first county courthouse. Ocala was established in 1849.

The Marion County Jail can house as many as 1,800 male and female adult and juvenile inmates. Under the direction of the Custody and Security Division of the Corrections Bureau of the Sheriff’s Office, the facility is located at 700 NW 30th Avenue, Ocala, Florida 34475.
