ABOUT ORLANDO

Orlando, located in central Florida, was founded in 1875 and was named after a soldier, Orlando Reeves, who died while defending his fellow soldiers during a Native American attack. The city was originally a cattle-ranching and farming community, but it began to grow in the late 19th century with the construction of the South Florida Railroad. This transportation link brought new settlers to the area and led to the development of a downtown business district.

In the early 20th century, Orlando became a popular tourist destination, with the opening of several hotels and attractions. The city was also home to a thriving citrus industry, with many orange groves and packing houses located in the area. However, a series of freezes in the mid-20th century devastated the citrus industry, leading Orlando to diversify its economy.

One of the major events in Orlando's history was the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971. This event sparked a huge influx of tourists to the city and led to the development of a number of other attractions, such as Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Today, Orlando is known as a major tourist destination, with millions of visitors coming to the city each year to visit its theme parks and other attractions.

In addition to its tourist industry, Orlando has a thriving business community, with many companies in the technology, healthcare, and defense industries. The city is also home to a number of universities and research institutes, making it a hub for education and innovation.

Overall, Orlando's history reflects its evolution from a small, agricultural community to a major tourist and business destination. The city has continually adapted and grown over the past 150 years, and it is now a vibrant and diverse place that is home to people from all walks of life.
