Gotha FloridaGotha Florida

Have you discovered the Gotha neighborhood yet? One of Central Florida’s popular neighborhood options, Gotha contains around 2,000 people and 250+ households. This Orange County neighborhood can be found between Ocoee and Windermere in location with a population of just over 1,900 people, a steady increase from the number from the year 2000 in which there were fewer than 1,000.

Since this neighborhood was once owned by a German immigrant who discovered it and bought 1,000 acres, today you’ll find many German American families living here. From the warm climate to the easy access to great Florida attractions, here is a look at why some are choosing Gotha for their next Florida residence

Gotha’s History

Gotha was founded by German immigrant H.A. Hempel back in 1885. He bought 1,000 acres after finding financial success from his invention and patent used for printing pages, and decided to name it after his birthplace of Gotha, Germany.

He used to advertise by mail to colder, northern cities to promote the town he discovered for its mild winters and overall warmer climate. His enticing brochures eventually worked as today many Germans made their way there while Hempel was creating a sawmill to construct a general store, school, community hall, and post office, along with providing the wood shingles for the first homes in the region. Today, many German American families live here and remember its founder based on the main street in the town being named Hempel Avenue.

In the 1890s, the town was a very lively place with Turner Hall used for musical events and dances. They also used to have a bowling alley, a gymnastics class, and a general German culture enjoyed in the area. Many residents here would make a living in the citrus industry, but some families left after the Big Freeze in 1894 that caused devastation to the orange crops.

The area of Gotha used to be the main commercial hub of the western part of Orange County. It would be one of the areas with the busiest train station before Winter Garden, a nearby destination, took the lead in this category. This has allowed Gotha to remain the quaint, small town it’s always been with fewer than 2,000 residents.

If you’re considering living in Central Florida for a relocation, you’ll find the rich history and beauty of Gotha a wonderful choice.
