NAME: Hague
COUNTY: Alachua
CLIMATE: Cold in Winter
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring & Summer
COMMENTS: Very small resident population that probably would not consider themselves a ghost town. Located just off Hwy 441 between Gainesville and Alachua.
REMAINS: 1880 Old School House-Methodist Church
Hague became a railroad town in the 1800's. There was a post office, community school, sawmill, commissary, and cotton mills. The very small community stands as a reminder of the old shipping railroad towns that dotted the state of Florida in the 1800's. Timber usage and the boll weevil desimated the early industries. The old railroad station site can still be found with the water tank. The old School House-Methodist Church was built in 1880 and was restored in 1982. The building has the original wide board, tongue and groovve flooring, benches and pulpit. The resumed regular services in 1983. Submitted by: Mike Woodfin
