or meeting venue



In 2015, The Mount Dora Historic Train Depot celebrated its 100 year anniversary! The same year, a magnificent restoration was completed through the greatly appreciated generosity of The Mount Dora Community Trust.

A new roof, high exposed beam ceilings, warm and beautiful heart of pine flooring and the recreation of the old wooden sliding doors to the platform transformed the depot into a breathtaking site. It is the perfect setting for glamorous, intimate parties such as weddings, anniversaries and birthdays, but at the same time is the perfect facility for business meetings and corporate functions. The depot can seat up to 100 people, with tables and chairs included.

Former Florida State University coach Bobby Bowden will speak at 7 p.m. on Saturday in the Brackett Gymnasium at MDCA. One of winningest coaches in college football history with a career record of 377-129-4, Bowden is expected to speak about the role athletics and faith have played in his life...

The Confectionary offers gelato and soft-serve ice cream in wafer or waffle cones with popular flavors such as salted caramel, fudge brownie, rum raisin, coconut, caramel cappuccino, cheesecake, mango sorbet and bourbon butter pecan. Read more...


Part of Mount Dora dock closed for emergency repairs


MOUNT DORA – People accustomed to strolling along the 4th Avenue docks on Lake Dora will have to find a new spot to enjoy the water and sunsets for a while.

That's because a piece of the docks broke off into the lake when the structure was battered by strong waves during a storm last month, and city workers noticed substantial cracking during a subsequent inspection.

"We want to make sure it is stable and we have stabilized what's there," Mount Dora Public Works Director Roy Hughes told City Council members at a meeting last week. Read more...
