Mount Dora History

For a "taste"... Mount Dora was settled in 1874 by David M. Simpson, his wife and two children. In 1880 it was named "Royellou" by the postmaster, Ross Tremain after his children Roy, Ella and Louis. In 1883 the town was re-named "Mount Dora" for Dora Ann Drawdy. In 1887 the railroad arrived and brought tourists who enjoyed a winter retreat for hunting, fishing and boating. Today our town is noted for its crafts, antique shops, historical buildings and beautiful scenery. The John P. Donnelly House, The Lakeside Inn and the Old Mount Dora Railroad are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Mount Dora's Culture is a relaxing mix of antique shops, one of a kind artisans, diversified dining, historic bed & breakfasts, and beautiful lakeside living.

The town is known as the "Festival City."

We host some of the largest and finest art festivals, craft fairs, music and wine festivals in the county.

Come join with us for a Taste of Our Town Tour to find out much more about Mount Dora's captivating history and culture.
