Coming August 2020
The origins of Lake County, my next book in a popular series of central Florida books, will be available this August, 2020. A county carved out in 1887 from a corner of Orange County, and a sliver of Sumter County, TAVARES: Darling of Orange County; Birthplace of Lake County tells of this region's amazing founders, the settlements they established, hardships endured, and how the Great Lake Region evolved into modern day Lake County.
A TEASER OF THINGS TO COME
Loch Leven is more than a lake north of historic Mount Dora! For starters, it's also the name of a lakefront community of homes. Loch Leven is also a shopping center, home to a Publix and other shops local residents frequent.
So, how much do you really know about Loch Leven's origin?
Was the lake named by the subdivision developer?
What does Loch Leven mean?
Which was named first, Mount Dora, or Loch Leven?
Who was Loch Leven's first homesteader?
Loch Leven was named before the town of Mount Dora was ever established. The lake's origin and more will be found in Chapter 26: Eastern Gateway: Mount Dora, this August.
