Welcome to Wellborn!

Wellborn is located in North Central Florida in eastern Suwannee County near the border of Columbia County. It is about halfway between Lake City and Live Oak just off Highway 90. Wellborn's location in close proximity to I-10 and I-75 makes it a convenient travel distance from Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Valdosta and Gainesville. Orlando and Tampa are both less than three hours away. Fishing in the rivers or lakes, and swimming in the many neighboring springs are major pastimes. The first records of Wellborn's settlement begin around the 1840s. Wellborn was a railroad station beginning in the 1860s. Many of today's Wellborn families can trace their roots back to this time.
