Highlands County was created in 1921 from a portion of the original DeSoto County and was named because of the county’s high terrain. Highlands County residents love the area for the slower pace of life it offers as compared to much of the rest of the State of Florida. The city of Sebring serves as the county seat and is home to Florida’s first state park, Highlands Hammock State Park, and one of the oldest continuously running automobile race tracks in the United States, the Sebring International Raceway, which has hosted the 12 Hours of Sebring Motorsports Endurance Race every year since 1952. Sebring is also known for its historical downtown district which was built around a circle and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Highlands County is the perfect home for lovers of the arts, nature, history, and race cars.
