On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
A history of “Second Lake” – aka - Monroe to thee;
And “The Rutland Mule Matter” by RLC.
“First Road to Orlando” is a history of how an 1840s Mosquito County military trail, heading inland from Lake Monroe, the lake first known as Second Lake, evolved into a main artery for central Florida’s earliest settlers. Along this trail the small 1850s hamlet Orlando became the Orange County seat. Signed copies of all RLC central Florida history books will be available today, Small Business Saturday (November 30), at Pine Castle Historical Society, 631 Wilks Avenue.
Pine Castle Historical Society, 10 AM to 3 PM
Cronin Books are also available at the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation Museum and Amazon.com
