Description

A map showing drainage easements for a portion of Orange County, Florida, describing what is likely the real estate property of present-day Sky Lake. The map was prepared at the request of Hyman Lake, the real estate developer of Sky Lake, a residential community and unincorporated area in Orange County. 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.
