Frostproof Florida is one of the Oldest Settlements in Polk County. Frostproof began its roots in the 1800's, and to some, the town was known as Keystone City, but the name was rejected by the Post Office Department because it might be confused with another town called Keystone Heights near Jacksonville Florida. The Section on the north shore of Clinch Lake was originally known as Fort Clinch, and established during the Indian Wars in 1850. It was established by General Twiggs along with Fort Arbuckle and several others in an attempt to form a defense line from Ft. Meade to the Atlantic Ocean, and was named after General Duncan C. Clinch. Fort Clinch was established on Jan. 13, 1850 and the troops were withdrawn on Jun 8, 1850. The city received the official name of Lakemont in 1898, and in 1906 was officially changed to Frostproof.
