Description

A south view of Sky Lake, Florida, in 1966. The second photograph is annotated to identify the Beeline Mall, Publix, Oak Ridge and Oak Ridge II, Sky Bowl, Orlando Central Park, Oak Ridge High School, and Candlelight Park. The roadway at the bottom of the photograph is Florida State Road 528 (SR 528) also called the Martin Andersen Bee Line Expressway. The Bee Line has since changed its name to the Martin Andersen Beachline Expressway.

Sky Lake is a residential community and unincorporated area in Orange County, Florida. It is located approximately seven miles south of Downtown Orlando between Lancaster Road and Sand Lake Road. The community was developed in late 1950s and 1960s by Hymen Lake. Houses originally sold in the range of $10,000 to $15,000. In the 1970s, Sky Lake became one of the first housing developments to be racially integrated. The community was originally proposed to include one thousand homes within the middle of the square mile block and a ring of commercial developments along the perimeter.
