The Suwannee River borders it on the north, west, and much of the south. The word “Suwannee” may either come from the Cherokee word “sawani” (echo river) or be a corrupted form of the Spanish “San Juan” (Saint John). The total area is 692 square miles, and the population was 41,551, as of the 2010 census. Over 18% of the residents are below the poverty line.
The county seat of Live Oak lies on Interstate 10 in the north central part of the region. It was established at the intersection of two important railroads. A large live oak tree nearby became a favorite gathering and resting spot for many of the railway workers, giving the community its name.
