Hague is an unincorporated community in Alachua County, Florida, United States.

History[edit]

Hague was named after Archelaus Hague (1828–1899) who was an early settler and landowner. [1] The settlement was made in early 1884 and was next to a railroad.[2] The boll weevil destroyed the timber industry, and it subsequently became a ghost town.[3]
