Excerpt from "The Great Towns of America" website...
"Mt. Dora is the prettiest inland village of Florida. Gentle hills (some of the state’s highest) rise above scenic Lake Dora. Numerous other small lakes, plus citrus orchards and forests of hardwoods and pine, fill the surrounding semitropical countryside. From the earliest settlement well over a century ago, the town has grown slowly but steadily thanks to citrus and tourism."
Mount Dora is the featured town in the David and Joan Vokac book, "The Great Towns of America" website. Follow this link to see the story.
