Mayor Buddy Dyer and City of Orlando Are putting the last nails in the coffin of the last Slave town in Orlando Florida and maybe the whole state, legally welled to the 88 slaves by their last masters, signed and witnessed by an army officer, Emos F Little Capt. 161st (August 1, 1865).
I believe that this is so pressed for time, so important and a long posting that
I must write in two postings in order to not lose your interest, for this I apologize.
9 Investigates as City of Orlando continues to buy up land in Parramore http://www.wftv.com/news/news/local/9-investigates-city-orlando-continues-buy-land-par/nbdjz/
The main reason why I wrote the names Native Americans first is because we the Native Americans were in the state first and the first to have our cities and villages crushed by the aggressor and first to be forced out!
There is not much that can be done now for the first people however, at this time, it is still not too late to band together and stop the assimilation by this newest aggressor?
A Real Florida Ghost Town
This was a center for Native American life the now-destroyed Alday Pond Indian Mounds appear to have dated from the time when the Poverty Point culture thrived in Louisiana.
Poverty Point was an important civilization that grew even before the invention of poverty and its influences spread in all directions from a main site in northeastern Louisiana the culture that spread as far as Florida more than 3,000 years ago.
The people of the mounds were followed by others.
This is just an example of who the mound might have looked like, as stated above, the original mound was destroyed!
Shell middens and mounds dating from the Weeden Island period (A.D. 400 – A.D. 900) still exist in the Parramore area, as do sites from the Mississippian or Fort Walton time period (A.D. 900 – A.D. 1500).
The woods and ponds were claimed as a hunting ground by the Chacato,
dividing these groups.
A monument erected by former students stands before the ruins of Central School Today, very little remains of the once thriving town. The stores and mills and turpentine stills are all gone. Only a few buildings still survive, among them an old one-room school on Cox Road. A monument has been
erected at the site of Central School on Circle Hill Road and people gather each year at Oak Grove Baptist Church for an annual homecoming, celebrating the memory of Parramore and its former residents.
