Probable Rail Town Submitted by: Gerald McMillen

Tohopkee was a small lumber town along the Florida East Coast Railroad's Kissimmee Valley Extension.  The town name is a Creek Indian word for Fort or Fence.  Postal records indicate it had mail service from 1923 to 1927.  The KV railway line was discontinued in 1947 and the town disappeared.  Very little information is available about Tohopkee.  Today the site is part of the vast Deseret Cattle and Citrus land, privately owned and very hard to reach.    Submitted by Jim Pike
