Apopka, The Big Potato, Florida
I lived in this lovely town, just north of Orlando, for over 8 years. They were some of the best years in my life and it is still a place I love going back to visit over and over. This week WESH online news has a pictorial display of Apopka's history. It is one for the books really. I learned so many things about Apopka. For example there had been a terrible tornado in 1918 that destroyed the town's one room school house. Later the town rebuilt a much larger school with sturdy concrete and bricks. Just fun to look at and mentally locate where each picture was taken. See link here.
