The city of Altamonte Springs was originally known as Snow Station, a stop on the South Florida Railroad. In 1882, a group of Boston millionaires provided the Altamonte Land, Hotel and Navigation Company the money to buy 1200 acres in the area; the name comes from the Spanish words for "high hill."


In 1883, the Company built The Altamonte Hotel. The hotel was a grand hotel for wealthy winter visitors that boasted 130 rooms, 49 fireplaces, and 500 feet of verandas. Cool and pure water was piped to the hotel from the springs in a nearby lake.


In 1887, the U.S. Post Office granted the name change to Altamonte Springs. And, some 33 years later, it was incorporated as a town in 1920.


The hotel continued to cater to its wealthy winter guests until it burned down in 1953. Fifty firemen from seven communities fought the fire for 22 hours but could not save the hotel.


Today, the city is home to over forty one thousand residents.

The first known permanent settlers in the Orange City area were Louis and Mary Ann Thursby. The Thursby's moved to the area in the early 1850's after they purchased a cabin on 133 acres from a nurseryman who spent the winters with his family in the area and the rest of the year in New York.


But Orange City was not founded until 1874 when Dr. Seth French and a group of settlers from Wisconsin came to the area and purchased a few thousand acres of land in the area. Some years later, Dr. French was appointed Florida's first Commissioner of Immigration.


The Orange City area settlement became well established shortly thereafter; some of the women began a book exchange that would become the library, the residents organized the Orange City Methodist Church, and then founded the first public school in Volusia County.


Orange City was named for the thousands of acres of orange groves planted in and around the city. Today, it has a population of over ten thousand.
