LOST DECADE of the ORANGE BELT RAILWAY
At the 2014 Grand Opening of Winter Garden Heritage Foundation's expanded History Center, high school students performed three skits on how their city may have been named. One skit was adapted from the facts presented in 'Ghost Towns & Phantom Trains', telling of how Orange Belt Railway had to obtain a critical right-of-way agreement at the last minute in 1891, but found the property owners were vacationing at Berlin, Germany, home to the famous 19th Century Wintergarten theater.
