Gladys Davis received this Christmas card in 1929 from a friend or relative named Sadie. It’s postmarked “Ocoee” and addressed simply as “City,” which meant that the card was being delivered to the location of its postmark. Times were certainly simpler then. Gladys was a graduate of the Lakeview High School Class of 1928. The Winter Garden Heritage Foundation collects and preserves mementos like these donated by many West Orange County families.
The Winter Garden Heritage Foundation, which seeks to preserve our heritage and architecture while creating new cultural experiences, is celebrating its third decade with the debut of its new History Research and Education Center.
