On Sunday, September
12, 2010 at the Fran Carlton Center from 2pm to 4 pm, the Apopka
Historical Society's Preservation Council recognized
the owners of some of the oldest houses and buildings in Northwest
These 42 historic properties were the first entries into the
local ‘Northwest Orange County Register of Historic Places’.
Each house or building received a plaque with the date it was built
to be displayed on the building. They will also received a
certificate of recognition.
We were pleased to have two guest speakers for this event:
John Maseman: Director and Chief Conservator of The South Florida
Conservation Center, Inc. He talked about: “Why Lake Maggiore,
Why Zellwood and Why Sydonie?”
Steve Rajtar: Real estate lawyer with a love of history and the
outdoors, is also an author and creator of over one-hundred and
fifty historical tours. He talked about “Historical Trails”.
This was only the first
of several observances that are planned by the council. There
are many more houses and buildings that qualify as historic buildings
in the Northwest Orange County area.
