History of Davenport

Davenport dates back to the 1800’s when it was known as the first white settlement during the Second Seminole War. The military set up Fort Davenport here in 1838 just 12 miles north of the current location of Davenport. Fort Davenport FloridaThis fort was one of many that were built every 20 miles along the trail that starts at Fort Brooke to Fort Mellon. While the fort only lasted a few years, it left an impact being named Colonel William Davenport after the local US commander in the war.

Once 1880 hit, the city of Davenport really started with the South Florida Railroad extending here. It wasn’t called Davenport yet but it was actually called Horse Creek after the first one flowing past the site into Snell Creek, eventually into the Kissimmee River system. When a post office was built in 1884, it was named Horse Creek but changed to the name of Davenport just two years later. The city was then incorporated in 1915 making this neighborhood just over 100 years old. While the South Florida Railroad eventually got replaced by a new station downtown, that was closed in the 70s along with the second station that only lasted until 1986 and used for transporting fertilizer.

Old Circus World in Davenport FloridaWhat it’s like to live in Davenport

You may have heard about the Circus World amusement park formerly being located here in northeast Polk County. This was the major attraction that helped the local economy and it was actually changed into a Boardwalk and Baseball park in the 80's where the Kansas City Royals used to play. While the park is no longer there, the area around the former Baseball City stadium is now Posner Park, a large outdoor shopping center that it was redeveloped into.

Posner Park in Davenport FloridaLiving in Davenport comes with the subtropics climate which means high temps in the summer in the 90’s with the winters falling to about 50 degrees. Just like other parts of Florida, this city sees really hot summers and mild winters, although record lows have taken the temp into the teens in the winter and the 100’s in the summertime. The city itself is located in the Central Florida Highlands of the Atlantic coastal plain making the area mostly flat with some sporadic rolling hills.

The community likes to keep busy with fun social events to bring everyone together. The upcoming 4th of July Celebration is going to feature a special fireworks spectacular at the Lewis Matthews Sports Complex on Palm Street, along with other fun activities. You’ll find a Christmas Parade to enjoy the holiday lights during the holiday season and a Halloween celebration for trick-or-treaters. You’ll also see different events like art extravaganzas and barbecues.

When you’re searching for a simple and quaint community in Central Florida, the Davenport community may be the perfect place for you.
