Lake Mary, Seminole County, Floida

Named after the wife of a minister who settled on the northern shores of the lake, Lake Mary started as a village of two tiny settlements called Bent's Station and Belle Fontaine. They were located along the railroad that ran between Sanford and Orlando.


The City began primarily as a citrus-based agricultural community. In the early seventies, Lake Mary began to transform into a semi-rural bedroom community serving Orlando. During the late eighties and early nineties the City experienced tremendous growth in residential development as well as an economic development center with hundreds of thousands of square feet of office, retail and industrial uses.
