Central Florida History

NINTH Day of a 19th Century Florida Christmas

On the 9th day of Christmas, my true-love READ to me, of a NINTH Post Office, an EIGHT year old pioneer, SEVEN Honorable Floridians, SIX swans-a-swimming on Lake EOLA, FIVE GOLD STAR RATED BOOKS, FOUR orphaned children, THREE historic pyramids; TWO rail depots, and a meeting beneath the Council Oak tree.

Visit my FIRST ROAD webpage for additional information.

“Your work was so needed and well done,” wrote a central Florida researcher and local resident of 40 plus years. “Exhibits were wonderful. Even the highlighted names makes the book easier to read.” An Indian trail evolved, by the early 1850s, into the “public road to Orlando.” First Road to Orlando is the true story of the earliest towns in this region: Mellonville, Rutledge and Fort Reid in present day Seminole County, as well as Maitland, Fort Gatlin and Orlando in Orange County. The ninth post office in this region, opened September 19, 1857, was named ORLANDO. A tiny four (4) acre village, laid out in the middle of a wilderness, has long been a source of intriguing mystery and uncertain history. “Your research is astounding! With that detail you figured out questions that have lingered for years.” 
A perfect holiday gift for the history buff.
