About Maitland, Florida
Welcome to Maitland, Florida, a charming city located in Orange County, just 10 miles north of downtown Orlando. Maitland is known for its rich history, beautiful parks, lakes, and luxury homes.
Maitland is home to the Enzian Theater, the region’s only art-house cinema and setting for the annual Florida Film Festival. The theater was built in 1985 by the late philanthropist John Tiedke. Two large annual art festivals are in Maitland, along with other events. The Florida Audubon Society was founded in Maitland, and its headquarters, including a bird hospital, remain on Lake Sybelia.
History of Maitland
It was established in 1838 as Fort Maitland, named in honor of Capt. William S. Maitland, a hero of the Second Seminole War. In 1880, the railroad from Sanford arrived, sparking a tourism boom that lasted until freezes in the 1890s scuttled the visitor trade. In 1937 sculptor André Smith founded the Mayan- themed Art Center at Maitland, which was originally intended to be a compound where artists could live and work. The center, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, features an open-air chapel that has become a popular spot for weddings. Few seem frightened by the prospect of encountering Smith’s ghost, which is said to occupy the facility and peer over the shoulders of resident artists as they work. To help preserve vestiges of its past, city officials have established a historic corridor in the Lake Lily-Lake Catherine area. Along the corridor are roughly a half dozen homes built in the 1880s through the turn of the century. There are also a handful of historic commercial buildings along Maitland Avenue.
Maitland today is home to the Enzian Theater, the region’s only art-house cinema and setting for the annual Florida Film Festival. The theater was built in 1985 by the late philanthropist John Tiedke and is run by Tiedke’s daughter-in-law Siegrid. Two large art festivals are in Maitland: one in October, sponsored by the Maitland Rotary Club, and one in April, sponsored by the Maitland/South Seminole Chamber of Commerce. The Florida Audubon Society was founded in Maitland, and its headquarters, including a bird hospital, remain on Lake Sybellia.
