History

The Town of Orlando was incorporated in 1875 with 85 inhabitants, 22 of whom were qualified voters. Orlando’s history dates back to 1838 and the height of the Seminole Wars. The most common story is about a company of soldiers on duty during the height of the Seminole Wars. The U.S. Army built Fort Gatlin south of the present day Orlando City limits to protect settlers from attacks by Indians. After battling Indians back into the swamps on the east side of Lake Minnie (now Cherokee), the military troop settled there for the night.

With over 700 terrestrial animals, more than 200 freshwater fish, more than 1,000 marine fish, numerous other aquatic and marine vertebrates, and many thousands of terrestrial insects and other invertebrates, Florida literally is teeming with wildlife.

These multitudes of species are dependent upon the highly productive natural habitats of Florida, ranging from the tropical coral reefs of the Keys and the magnificent Everglades "river of grass" to the awe-inspiring array of first-magnitude springs and the quiet beauty of the rolling sandhills.

I like to go to Cici's pizza because it has plenty of food. Dollar Tree also because you have all this at a good price.
