Welcome

How We Grew tells the story of Osceola County, Florida’s past and future development and evolution, from early settlement through a projection of growth far into the future.

Since its humble beginning in 1887, when portions of Orange and Brevard Counties were merged, Osceola County has become a major transportation crossroad for Central Florida and home to the largest tourist destination in the world. Osceola County citizens have seen rapid changes in the range of housing and job options available, the way that we transport ourselves and our interrelationship with the natural environment.
