Windermere Florida, History of Windermere, Orange County

From the majestic live oaks dripping with Spanish moss to the pristine fresh water Butler Chain of Lakes, Windermere Florida is steeped in history. Established in 1889 and chartered in 1925, Windermere has maintained its small town Florida charm, while making all the necessary advancements to be seen as a thriving modern city. One of the more notable moves in this direction came in 2007 when Windermere attempted to annex two affluent communities bordering its city limits, Isleworth and Butler Bay. This attempt was met with resistance from Orange County which stood to lose millions in property tax revenues as a result of the proposed annexation. The result was the annexation Butler Bay which was approved by 90% of Butler Bay’s population. Isleworth remains under Orange County jurisdiction.
