Did you know there are mountains in Florida? The city of Mt. Dora, Florida is tongue-in-cheek when it comes to their name.
Not too many people can say that a place that is 177 feet above sea level is a "Mount". (I'll blog more about Mt. Dora in my "Q" post.) But Florida is not "most places". Floridais well known for its flatness - but that isn't quite true.
The Donnely House is not open to the public, but if you pass it by, you may well be invited to drink some free iced tea, take a picture, and stay a spell.
This home is currently owned by a Masonic Lodge and is not open to the public, except for the part I am showing you, which serves as an unofficial welcome center to the city of Mt. Dora.
The Donnelly House was placed on the National Historic Register on April 4, 1975 - 43 years ago today.
Mt. Dora is a city worth visiting just for its ...well, you'll see when I get to "Q". It is full of artisans, and the most interesting people and shops.
I must also, sadly, add to day that we in the United States commemorate another sad day in United States history- the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., an event that changed the course of our history and affected, in some way, millions of lives.
