About Largo

Largo was named after the town of Largo, Scotland. The name "Largo" is a reference to the Scottish Burgh of Larg in Wigtownshire on Great Britain's west coast. In 1842 John C. Calhoun, then an American congressman from South Carolina and later vice president under John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, bought a plantation in nearby Tarpon Springs with his brother-in-law Joseph Yulee; they called it "The Hammock". When Yulee became Florida's first territorial governor in 1845 he visited this property many times (including once as governor) to hunt deer using native dogs as well as imported greyhounds from Cuba that were faster than those previously used for hunting by Native Americans or colonists alike. He also brought along friends including Secretary of War William Marcy and President James K Polk who hunted ducks there while visiting Florida during winter months when Washington Dc was cold & muddy due to lack of proper infrastructure at that time period (no sewers).
