Jacob Summerlin Taxi Cab the “Cattle King of Florida” arrived in 1873 to buy 200 acres of land in exactly what is currently Downtown Orlando. Soon after the purchase, on the edge of his commercial property there was a sink hole developing.

Known to the public as Sandy Beach, this lake was ideal for the inhabitants to appreciate on hot Florida days.

In 1888, Lake Eola was acknowledged as a City of Orlando public park.…
