Rollins Digital Collections
Known as the “City of Homes,” Winter Park has been the home of Rollins since its founding in the late nineteenth century. “Set like a gem amid the waters blue,” the College and the town have grown up together over the years; each has drawn from and shared with the other in a symbiotic relationship. This collection includes photos, postcards, and historical documents that are related to Winter Park and Florida before the age of theme parks. Through enhanced access to this digital resource, users will be able to learn about lives of early pioneers, homes and haunts, events and people who helped shape the histories of Winter Park and other Central Florida communities.
