Description

Collection of digital images, documents, and other records contributed by the Maitland Historical Museum. The museum is located at 221 West Packwood Avenue in Maitland, Florida.

Present-day Maitland was originally inhabited by the Seminole tribe, which called the area "Fumecheliga," meaning "Musk Mellon Place." In 1838, Fort Maitland was established on the west coast of Lake Maitland by the U.S. Army and named after Captain William Seton Maitland, a casualty of the Seminole Wars.

Settlement in Maitland expanded at the close of the American Civil War and the citrus industry grew. Around 1876, Dr. Haskell formed a syndicate and began contruscting a railroad from Jacksonville to Maitland that was completed in 1880. In 1885, the area was incorprated as the Town of Lake Maitland. Many left Maitland following the Freeze of 1894-1895. Despite the freeze's devastation, the citrus industry was able to grow and expand, reaching its peak in 1926.

More growth occurred in the 1950s and 1960s with the development of the space industry in nearby Orlando and Brevard County. In 1959, the city was renamed Maitland. Growth continued in the 1970s with the arrival of Walt Disney World in the Orlando area.
