    Originally incorporated in 1903, Winter Garden was largely an agricultural community, known for its vast citrus industry. Several winter freezes in the 1970’s and1980’s along with the opening of Walt Disney World, changed the nature of the city’s economy. Although vestiges of the citrus industry still remain, today the city’s Economic Development Department is targeting new businesses in the digital media, software and hardware, and medical industries.
