Apopka’s History

Apopka’s history dates back to the early 1800s when it was primarily a farming community. The name “Apopka” is derived from a Native American word that means “potato-eating place.” The city was officially incorporated in 1882, and it has grown steadily over the years. Ferns became the industry for Apopka in 1912 and shortly after Apopka developed the name of “Fern City”. Tropical plants were introduced to growers in the area and this influx of foliage took over the fern industry and the City became known as “The Indoor Foliage Capital of the World”.
