Some historians date to the name Orlando approximately in 1836, when a soldier named Orlando Reeves allegedly died in the area during the war against the tribe of Seminole Indians. However, it appears that Orlando Reeves worked on a plantation about 48 km north and the first settlers found his name carved into a tree and believed it was the location of a tomb. They referred to the area as the “Tomb of Orlando” and then simply “Orlando”.
