Port Orange (Images of America)
Port Orange, a palm-shaded community on Florida’s Atlantic coast, provides residents and visitors with balmy ocean breezes, friendly neighbors, and all the conveniences of a modern city. But it is Port Orange’s unique and diverse heritage, composed of
challenges and accomplishments, extraordinary events and daily living, that has given the city a proud character all its own. This new volume of visual history traces the fascinating history of the Port Orange area from ancient man through the Indian Wars,
the pioneer days, the Civil War, the Great Depression, World War II, and the development of a city that will reach 50,000 residents by 2001. The book, in images and detailed captions, tells the stories of the city’s prominent residents and families, as well as landmark businesses and institutions that have played an integral part in the
unfolding history of Port Orange. From the Timucuan Indians and pioneering settlers to Dunlawton Sugar Mill and the auto racing industry, this pictorial retrospective tells the community’s own special tale.
