On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true-love took me on a tour, of TWO historic railway Depots.
Lights and displays make historic WINTER GARDEN a magical place during the holidays, but while there, be sure and visit the town’s TWO railway depots. One wouldn’t know by looking around central Florida today, but during the late 1800s and early 1900s, more than a hundred railway depots dotted a 50 mile radius around ORLANDO. Few depots have survived, but TWO are on display in historic downtown Winter Garden.
Both are now museums, and one once served as the depot for Orange Belt Railway. CitrusLAND: Ghost Towns & Phantom Trains is a historic Novel that takes place following the devastating Florida freeze of 1894-95. A great gift for the history lover in your family, visit OBRR for further details.
