A brief history of Maitland Florida

Maitland is also rich in history. In 1838 a fort was established and named Fort Maitland after captain William Seton Maitland, a hero of the Seminole Wars. At that time, the only way of getting to Central Florida was by boat from Jacksonville down the St. Johns River to Fort Mellon (Sanford), then by horse or foot. Fort Maitland was a resting stop between Fort Mellon and Fort Gatlin (Orlando). Part of the Old Black Bear Trail which ran from Montreal, Canada to St. Petersburg, Florida, is now Maitland Avenue.
After the Indian wars the fort was torn down. The natural spring waters and canopy of pine trees in the area continued to bring settlers. They began buying large tracts of land and after clearing sections they planted citrus trees which has been the main industry for decades. The railroad was extended from Jacksonville to Maitland for distribution.
