For those considering purchasing property in Orlando, Florida, it’s easy to understand why people fall in love with a city that earned the name “The City Beautiful.” Orlando was incorporated as a city in 1885 after officially being a town for only ten years. Before then, the area of modern-day Orlando had suffered dramatically because of the Union blockade during the Civil War. In the 1870s, the Reconstruction Era spurred an enormous population boom at a time when only 85 residents lived there. The city experienced an era known as Orlando’s Golden Era between 1875 and 1895 when it becomes the nation’s citrus industry hub. The Curry family was one of the most influential families and homesteaders in the area in those days. The Econlockhatchee River flowed through the family’s property located in the eastern portion of what is now modern-day Orlando. Travelers frequently forded the river on their farm in a place that is now Curry Road, named for the family owned the property. The city is comprised of numerous neighborhoods, some of which developed over the years as people settled in the area, while others are master-planned communities. One of those master-planned neighborhoods is Avalon Park, established on the New Urbanism principle. These types of blocks focus on environmentally friendly habits, such as creating walkable communities with everything clustered tightly together. This is in contrast with the suburban sprawl.
