The History of Winter Garden, Florida
Who said winter can’t be in Florida?
After three wars with the Seminole Indians, farmers immigrated to Winter Garden from the South and soon built two railroad lines connecting downtown Winter Garden to the United States. The ground was so fertile in Winter Gardens that train workers spit tomato seeds in the soil, only returning to a prospering tomato plant! They sent postcards to their family depicting the pleasant winter and wrote, “you can have a garden in winter”! Thus, Winter Garden, Florida was born.
