History of Home Building in Lake Mary

A large population of native pine trees attracted the earliest settlers to this area of Seminole County. However, European orange growers who received early land grants slowly replaced the lumberjacks and turpentine workers. Like other Southern communities, Lake Mary began to flourish after the rail system (South Florida Railroad) established a stop at the village (located between the Sanford and Orlando terminals). A dozen years before Lake Mary received its name from the wife of a Presbyterian minister, Frank Evans and his brothers moved to the area with their parents who established a permanent home where their descendants still live today. Evans studied as a chemist and founded one of the area's first manufacturing facilities to produce dyed goods and textiles. Having founded the Chamber of Commerce some five decades prior to the city's incorporation in 1973, Evans' role in the development of Lake Mary is well documented at the Lake Mary Historical Museum. Residents today carry on the tradition as a self-promoting community and the city remains one of the fastest-growing areas of greater Orlando.
