Lake & Orange Counties: A Century of Change

Thursday, September 19, 2019

The Modernism Museum presents our next Dine & Learn at 1921 Mount Dora: Lake & Orange Counties: A Century of Change featuring Jim Crescitelli of the Winter Garden Heritage Foundation on Thursday, September 19th, 2019 at 12:30 PM (luncheon) and 6:30 PM (dinner). The event will take place at the Modernism Museum’s award-winning restaurant, 1921 Mount Dora (recently voted #1 Best Restaurant in Lake County by Orlando Magazine). The cost is $35 a three-course, prix-fixe menu with lecture included. Join the Modernism Museum and Jim Crescitelli in a discussion of the history of West Orange County and the Lake Apopka region through the people who settled here. Native Americans, pioneers drawn from the Deep South, farmers and citrus workers, and people brought here by 20th century theme parks and the aerospace industry all shaped this part of Central Florida. Please call the Modernism Museum at (352) 385-0034 to reserve your spot. Limited seating is available.
