Azalea Park

Azalea Park has a fascinating history from its start in April of 1952. It was actually created from what remained of a private air field. It was actually what was considered the greatest achievement for Wellborn C. Phillips, Sr., the developer of Azalea Park. Since the neighborhood recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, interest in the neighborhood and its roots has been the talk of the area. Take a look at everything that is Azalea Park from its history to today.

How Azalea Park was founded

Azalea Park FloridaAzalea Park’s location in Orange County was first surveyed by Henry Washington, the nephew of George Washington, back in 1843. Then in 1881, Hamilton Disston of Philadelphia decided to purchase 4 million Floridian acres at 25 cents per acre, even though much of it was swampy land.

He intended to straighten out the Kissimmee River, dig canals for draining excess water from the river valley, and to increase the land for possible investors. Some of that land was signed over to Sir Edward James Reed in 1883 which included the Azalea Park area. Reed was interested in the development of railroads in Florida after being a British navy architect.

Azalea Park TrailsBy 1914, the land had been acquired by Overstreet Supply Company and sold to investors but the investors defaulted on their mortgage by 1915. Then it was sold by court order but eventually the Overstreet Supply Company got back their deed to the property which allowed them to have it reserved for Pocataw Lumber and Turpentine Company.

Fast forward to 1937 when the land has already been sold many times and finally Cannon & Mills Aircraft Company purchased it, an out-of-state investor. An air show was held at the new Cannon Mills Air Port the next year but the month after, one of the owners J.W. Cannon III dies in plane crash.

After that in 1940, the air frield was sold to a Florida Aeronautical and Supply Company owned by Thomas Gordon but the name didn’t change and it was still used for owners to fly in planes for parts, services, and flight instruction. Gordon then opened a cab company as well as Orlando Airlines which later became Florida Airways.

Azalea Park Skate ParkBy 1952, the $7.5 million Orlando neighborhood of Azalea Park was being planned at the home of the former airport, and two acres lots of land were used for five churches, all of which would be the largest residential development in Central Florida designed to accommodate 4,000 residents.

Without the financing of an elementary school, the neighborhood wasn’t as popular as hoped at first, despite being designed for young families with cash to spend and homes in various styles and floor plans. The neighborhood did have its own chapter of the Lions Club, the Orlando Garden Club, and a community club and swimming pool was eventually added. The neighborhood became a success story.
