Three Names End With Orlando
The larger area currently known as Orlando was originally Fort Gatlin (built during the Second Seminole War). Prior to having the name Orlando, it was referred to as Jernigan after the first permanent European settlers to the area (Issac and Aaron Jernigan). The Jernigan post office opened in 1850 and Jernigan became the county seat of Orange County soon after, in 1856.
There are nearly a half dozen stories, tales, and myths about how the city name was changed from Jernigan to the current-day Orlando. Regardless of which is true (if any of them), by the end of the roaring 20's, Orlando was in the middle of a housing boom that rivals that of today. Of course, like many booms in the 20's, it all came to an abrupt end with the stock market crash, ensuing Great Depression, and later WWII.
Nearly two decades after WWII Orlando changed forever when Walt Disney, after first considering Miami and Tampa, announced plans to build Walt Disney World in Orlando. The theme park helped to establish Orlando as one of the most visited places in the world and no shortage of other companies (Universal, Seaworld, Legoland) eager to jump on the bandwagon. Today, the larger Orlando-metro area today is home to over 2.5 million people and growing!
