COMMUNITY HISTORY

 Mellon (Sanford) and Fort Gatlin (Orlando). What is now Maitland Avenue was part of the Old Black Bear Trail which ran from Montreal, Canada to St. Petersburg, Florida, and passed by the fort. There was a large hotel, Park House, built between Park Lake and Lake Catherine, which became the winter resort for famous people of the time, including two presidents, Grover Cleveland and Chester Arthur.

In the 1960's, Maitland Avenue and Orlando Avenue (U.S. Highway 17-92) came alive with the construction of houses and businesses.. The arrival of Disney World, in 1971 to the Metro Orlando area had a strong impact on the continuous growth of Maitland property. Between 1972 and 1979, five branch banking establishments moved to Maitland, and twelve new residential subdivisions were developed. Late in the 1970’s, 226 acres of land were purchased by an Atlanta, Georgia firm and developed into Maitland Center west of Interstate 4. Maitland Center is within the city limits and continues to grow and is one of the leading office parks in the southeast United States.


’s past and actively pursue preservation of historical residences. A “historical corridor” has been established. This corridor encompasses old residences still standing and occupied in the Lake Lily-Lake Catherine area and extending through the Central portion of the city. Examples of these homes are: the Arthur O’Heir House (1885), Chadburne Hall or High Oaks (1890), the James Arch House (1885), the Robert L. Wagner House (1881) and the Hill-Stone House (1908). Also, the Florida Audubon Society was founded in Maitland and continues in its protection of wild birds on Lake Sybelia.

The Audubon's Center for Birds of Prey is a leading raptor rehabilitation facility in the Southeast which has treated over 7,000 eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kites and vultures since opening in 1979. Release rate averages 39% of all admissions, and has totaled more than 3,000 birds of prey, including over 200 Bald Eagles.

In addition to the wildlife rehabilitation facilities, the Center includes real estate dedicated to a lakeside exhibit aviary which houses non-releasable raptors of 20 species. The aviary is a favored destination of school and civic organization tours, and includes a visit to the Audubon Birding Store, a resource for novice and expert birders.
