Historic Landmarks

Orlando’s Centennial in 1975 and the 1976 National Bicentennial brought a surge of patriotism and the desire to preserve local and National history.   In 1977, the W.R. O’Neal/Ponytz House became the first Local Orlando Landmark. The Victorian home was a part of six early homes surrounding Lake Cherokee, known as Honeymoon row; named for the six newly married couples who moved to Orlando and built homes in the area.  A year later, eleven sites were added including the Bumby Building, Roger’s Building, the ACL Train Station, the Hendry-Walker House, the Old Orlando Railroad Depot, and the First National Bank Building.  In all, forty-three sites have been designated local Orlando Historic Landmarks.

Since 1976, the City of Orlando’s Historic Preservation Board has continued to pursue the recognition and protection of the significant buildings, neighborhoods, objects and landscapes of our diverse city.  There are six local historic districts and 46 sites protected by local ordinances.  Orlando also has six districts and thirteen individual sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Though the NRHP is a great honor bestowed on a historic property, there are no ordinances to protect the site from severe alterations or even demolition. Therefore, many sites are also recognized at the local level with an ordinance granted from City Council.
