Fort Meade is a town of almost 5900 (up 3% since 2000) located at the intersection of U.S. Highways 98 and 17 in Polk County in Central Florida. Fort Meade is part of the Lakeland-Winter Haven Metropolitan Statistical Area. Fort Meade was established along a military road between Tampa and Fort Pierce in 1849 and was named for George Meade, an officer in the Second Seminole War. Future Confederate General Stonewall Jackson was stationed here in 1851. Fort Meade was burned down in 1864 by Union Forces. In 2001, Fort Meade was determined to be the geographical center of population for the state of Florida. Fort Meade is a pretty little town with an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities; popular with canoers and kayakers. Fort Meade has a very nice veteran’s memorial located next to city hall.

Fort Meade has a nice historic district with several buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There is one historic district and three individual locations in Fort Meade listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
