Astor is a census-designated place located in Lake County, Florida. As of the 2000 census, the CDP had a total population of 1,487.
Located on the St. Johns River, Astor was first settled in 1562 by Huguenot families who had fled religious persecution in France. The entire colony was wiped out by the Spanish in 1566 in pursuit of a Roman Catholic-only policy. In the late 1800s, William Backhouse Astor, Sr. from New York City's wealthy Astor family resurrected the town, naming it Manhattan. Later, it would be renamed Astor in his honor.
