Ocoee, Florida is a city located in Orange County, Florida. The area that is now Ocoee was originally inhabited by the Timucua people, a Native American tribe. The first non-indigenous settlers arrived in the area in the 1850s, and the city of Ocoee was officially founded in 1887. The city was named after the Ocoee River, which runs through the area.
The city was officially incorporated in 1922. In the early 20th century, Ocoee was primarily a small agricultural community known for its citrus crops.
During the 1920s and 1930s, Ocoee experienced a period of growth and development, which included the construction of new homes, businesses, and civic buildings. The city also played a significant role in the Florida real estate boom of the 1920s, as many people moved to the area to purchase new homes.
After World War II, Ocoee experienced significant growth as a suburban area, with the construction of new housing developments and the expansion of local businesses. Today, Ocoee is a diverse and growing city with a mix of residential, commercial, and industrial areas.
In recent years, the city has actively worked to acknowledge and understand the events of 1920 riots, through various initiatives such as creating historical markers, holding events and ceremonies to remember and acknowledge the victims, and encouraging the study of the riots in schools and community groups.
