The Silver Springs, Ocala, and Gulf Railroad was assigned land grants on March 12, 1879 by the state legislature of Florida. This was accomplished by Florida State Law Chapter 3170. This law required a set completion time in order for the land grant measures to take effect. This completion time was extended twice,with Florida State Law Chapter 3649 extending the time to December 31, 1888, and with Florida State Law Chapter 4261 extending the time to September 1, 1897.
