Description

The one-and-one-half-story bungalow is located at 205 North Lakeview Avenue in Winter Garden, Florida. Built in 1919, this structure historically associated with Henry "Harry" Edward Bumby (1870-1941), the developer of the subdivision in which it is located. In 1873, Bumby's father, Joseph, moved to Orlando, where he established a hardware store that became one of the largest of its kind in Central Florida. In addition to two stores in Orlando, Joseph opened a store in Winter Park and Winter Garden in 1917. The latter store was managed by his son, Harry. The house was sold after Harry Bumby's death to William Story in 1941. Later the house was owned by Tom and Mozelle Cox, owner of Tom Cox Men's Wear and Mozelle's Fashion Fair in Winter Garden.
