Located in Polk County on Alt. U.S. Highway 27, minutes south of the Osceola County line, Davenport is a community of approximately 1,924 and is southwest of Orlando between Kissimmee and Winter Haven near Lake Tohopekaliga and Lake Marion.  Davenport is ideally situated for growth.  The town's location in the area of I-4 and U.S. Highway 27 is highly conducive to expansion.

With land area of 1.6 square miles and an elevation of 136 feet, the community is 3.8 miles from Haines City and 9.7 miles from Celebration. It's about 28 miles from the Orlando International Airport, 49 miles from the Sanford Airport and 32 from the Lake land Regional Airport.  The rolling hills of the Lake Wales Ridge, stretching south for about 100 miles from this point in northeast Polk, provide an idyllic setting for the town of Davenport.

davenportclearDavenport was developed in the 1920's by Holly Hill. The citrus processing company subdivided former groves into a landscaped community with a Mediterranean theme.  One tradition says the community was named after Col. William Davenport, while another says it was named for a railroad conductor.  Although a quiet, small town Davenport is nonetheless in the center of a booming residential area. The rapid expansion of the Disney complex just to the north, coupled with thousands of vacant acres of land formerly used for citrus production, have drawn dozens of new subdivisions to the area.

hospitalclearHeart of Florida Regional Medical Center is a state-of-the-art acute care hospital, dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible.
