Port Orange FL is a progressive city along the Fun Coast of Florida with an estimated population of nearly 65,000 people. For 34 consecutive years, the city has received the Tree City USA award by the National Arbor Day Foundation and when you spend any amount of time in the area you’ll understand why.
Port Orange offers a wide range of opportunities for waterfront relaxation, including fishing, boating, golf and other sports.
Port Orange was settled after the Civil War by a man named John Milton Hawks who is best known for employing freed black men at his sawmill. Soon after, his wife established an integrated school which was one of the first of its kind in the area. This led an influx of freed black people to move to the area which resulted in the eventual unofficial naming of the area “Freemanville”.
The city has shifted industries over the last century from lumber to boat building, ranching and farming, to citrus and oysters. It is now a stunningly progressive 21st century city in every way.
When you are visiting, or if you live in, Port Orange Florida, there is no shortage of activities you can partake in. Take a trip to the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens where you will find ruins of the 19th century sugar mill as well as cement dinosaurs.
