Winter Garden Heritage Foundation
World War II, which began with the Nazi invasion of Poland in September 1939, was fought thousands of miles from American shores. On December 7, 1941, the attack on our base at Pearl Harbor brought our country into what became a global conflict. Winter Garden and West Orange County contributed to the war effort by supplying military personnel and healthful citrus products. Citizens volunteering on the home front trained as plane spotters for the Ground Observer Corps, and recycled metal objects for use by the armed forces. The exhibit features objects, archived letters, and photographs attesting to the wartime contributions of the citizens of West Orange County.
