History of Apopka Florida

Before Apopka was "The Indoor Foliage Capital of the World" or even before it was "The Fern City," it was The Lodge.  From about 7500 B.C. until about the 1st century A. D. when they disappeared for reasons unknown, Indians were believed to have lodged on the shores of Lake Apopka. Then for about 400 years the region appears to have been uninhabited.

When the Spaniards arrived in Florida in the 16th century, the Acuera tribe of the Timucua confederation was said to have lived in the Apopka area, growing crops and trading. By 1730 these natives were decimated by war and diseases brought by the Europeans and had also disappeared.

Then early in the 19th century, Indians again inhabited the area. There was a Seminole village on Lake Apopka, or Ahapopka, as they spelled and pronounced it. It remained an active village until the outbreak of the Second Seminole War in the mid 1830s. Coacoochee (Wild Cat), one of the most famous and influential War Chiefs, was born here and ruled as Chief of about 200 Indians until this village was evacuated and the natives sought refuge in the swampy areas around the St Johns.

The Armed Occupation Act of 1842 brought white settlers to the Apopka area. They received 160 acres if they would settle them.  These Pioneers and those that followed the Civil War from states to the north began converting the area into what it is today.

The settlement grew, attracting developers and settlers because of the climate and the agricultural opportunities and becoming an important trading center in the 1850s. The Masons' were particularly active. Orange Lodge #36 was organized in 1857, and The Lodge building, still standing on its original site at Alabama Avenue and Highway 441, was completed in 1859.

It was around this building that the town grew in the 1860s and 1870s and ultimately became the Town of Apopka City incorporated in 1882.

Progress continued and today Apopka is still an important hub of commerce. One of the fastest-growing cities in Orange County, it is home base to more than 45,000 citizens in the greater Apopka area.

Construction cranes work at a building site in Moscow on August 30, 2007Russia's economy shrank by 0.5 percent in the first three months of 2014 from the previous quarter, a minister said on Wednesday, fuelling concerns the Ukraine crisis could tip it into recession. Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said that Russia's economy grew just 0.8 percent in the first quarter of 2014, compared to activity in the same period last year. A recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of shrinking economic output. Many analysts believe Russia will fall into recession owing to the impact of the Ukraine crisis.

Workers install a roof on a multi-family building in BroomfieldBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. industrial production rose at a faster-than-expected clip in March, the latest sign the economy was gaining momentum. Groundbreaking for new homes also increased but remained well below the post-recession peak hit in November, signaling the drag the housing market is placing on the economy. The increase in industrial production, which beat economists' expectations for a 0.5 percent gain, reflected in part a 0.5 percent rise in manufacturing output.

A Bank of America sign is pictured in Encinitas, CaliforniaBank of America Corp reported an unexpected first-quarter loss on Wednesday after it took a $6 billion charge to cover litigation expenses, a figure that far exceeded the legal settlements the No. 2 U.S. bank has announced recently. The bank had previously said that a settlement would cut into its earnings by $3.7 billion before taxes. The extra litigation expenses came from setting aside money to cover future legal settlements tied to previously disclosed mortgage-related matters, Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson told reporters. Still, the bank's setting aside more money does not mean a settlement is imminent, Thompson told analysts on a separate conference call.

A paper cup is seen in Starbucks' Vigo Street branch in Mayfair, central LondonBy Tom Bergin LONDON (Reuters) - Starbucks Corp will move its European headquarters to London from the Netherlands this year and pay more tax in the UK as a result, the company said on Wednesday. The shift by the world's largest coffee chain comes after its low tax contributions in Britain provoked widespread criticism, including Prime Minister David Cameron telling a meeting in Davos that companies that avoided paying tax needed to "wake up and smell the coffee". Starbucks was called to testify before a parliamentary hearing about its tax affairs after Reuters reported in 2012 that the company had told the UK tax authority its British arm was a loss-making business while informing investors that the subsidiary was profitable. The company revealed at the hearing that it had agreed a deal with Dutch tax authorities allowing it to pay "a very low tax rate" there.

A South Korean passenger ship that has been sinking is seen at the sea off JindoBy Narae Kim JINDO, South Korea (Reuters) - South Korean coastguards and navy divers resumed their search on Thursday for nearly 280 people still missing after a ferry capsized in what could be the country's worst maritime disaster in over 20 years. Nearly 340 of the passengers were teenagers and teachers from the same school near the capital Seoul on a field trip to Jeju island, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the Korean peninsula. Parents of missing children faced an agonizing wait for news as they gathered in Jindo, a town close to where ferry capsized. I hope the government does everything to bring these kids back to their mothers." At the dockside in Jindo, women sat and stared out at the black, calm sea before them, quietly sobbing.
