TENTH Day of a 19th Century Florida Christmas

On the 10th day of Christmas, my true-love READ to me, about TEN Altamonte Homesteaders, the NINTH Post Office, an EIGHT year old pioneer, SEVEN Honorable Floridians, SIX swans-a-swimming in Lake EOLA, FIVE GOLD STAR BOOK RATINGS, FOUR orphaned children, THREE historic pyramids; TWO railway depots, and a meeting beneath the COUNCIL OAK TREE.


The origins of ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, some historians believed, began with Boston investors who built a hotel along the South Florida Railroad line. The real story however began a decade earlier, with a mishmash of homesteaders. Retired warriors, former enemies planted orange groves around a place called SNOWVILLE, a tiny community near another settlement named ALTAMONT. CitrusLAND: Altamonte Springs of Florida tells the fascinating history of a long-forgotten region that truly began after a deathly sick man was told he’d be dead within the year. His thousand mile walk, from Ohio to Florida, as well as a determination to prove his death sentence wrong, is where the real story of the HIGH MOUNT region began.
