Mount Dora is known for its southern charm and New England look, yet its history is just as engaging. The 'Festival City' began with the arrival of pioneer families such as the Drawdys, Simpsons, and Tremains. In the 1880s, it became a popular destination for Chautauqua events, when visitors gathered beside Lake Gertrude and Lake Dora for educational and cultural enrichment. In the twentieth century, Mount Dora weathered economic setbacks and racial conflict before becoming a premier city of the arts. Today, this beautiful lakefront community welcomes thousands of visitors to its numerous festivals, events, and active shopping village. Join authors Gary McKechnie and Nancy Howell as they celebrate the intriguing history of their town.
