Just as those election yard signs are disappearing, Winter Parkers might notice another sign popping up in yards across the city — Orange reminders of May as Historic Preservation Month.

Residents of historic homes are pulling out their signs as a visual reminder of the importance of preserving past architecture and charm to maintain the city’s vibrant character.

Winter Park’s Historic Register lists more than 120 homes and continues to grow each year.

Historic districts in the city include College Quarter, Virginia Heights East, Interlachen Avenue and the downtown area centered on Park Avenue.

Those in need of signs can contact the following: Sally Flynn:; Stephen Pategas: or John Skolfield:
