Orlando is not a city where the heritage behind the name is readily apparent. In fact, there was confusion over where the name originated from the beginning. The most widely accepted version is that the city is named for a soldier by the name of Orlando Reeves. It is said that the soldier was killed by Indians during a skirmish near Lake Eola in 1835.


As the story goes, the soldier and others were trailing a band of Indians. While on guard duty, the soldier spotted something that looked like a log in one of the lakes. When the soldier realized that the log was actually an Indian creeping towards the camp, he shouted a warning to his fellow soldiers.


Unfortunately for the soldier, he was struck by an Indian arrow and was mortally wounded. However, his fellow soldiers were able to defend themselves and the surviving Indians fled. A stone marker placed in Eola Park in 1939 honors Reeves as the man for whom the city was named. However, there are no War Department records for the soldier. So the confusion over where the name originated will likely remain.


Orlando has grown tremendously since it was incorporated in 1875. At that time, the city had 85 residents. Today, it has over two hundred and thirty five thousand residents.

The City of Apopka is named after the lake located southwest of the city. In turn, the lake was named for the Indians who hunted and fished in the area in centuries past. However, the origin of the name is unclear.


Some say that the name was shortened from Creek Indian words "aha" (meaning potato) and "papka" (meaning eating place). Others say that the name came from the Indian word "tsalopopkohatchee" (meaning catfish-eating creek) and that the city had originally been named as such. Then, when the name was shortened to Ahapapka, the translation became closer to "potatoes."


Although the origin of the name is unclear, we do know that the area was incorporated in 1882 as Apopka City and that five years later, the name was shortened when the "City" was dropped from the name.


Today, it is the second largest city in Orange County. More than thirty eight thousand residents call the city home.
