Davenport Real Estate and Homes for Sale in Davenport Florida
Like many others areas in Central Florida, Davenport was first settled after the Second Seminole War. In January 1839 the U.S. military set up Fort Cummings as a place to negotiate with the Seminoles to end the Second Seminole War. In spite of their efforts, the fort only lasted a few years.
Now that the fighting is over and we have become a more civilized people, Davenport is home to people from around the world. With it’s close proximity to Disney World and the other major attraction of Orlando, many Europeans have made roots in the Davenport area and many more are owners of vacation properties. These vacation properties or holiday homes are rented on short-term basis to vacationers visiting Central Florida. For the owners of these properties, this provides investment income while maintaining their own Florida retreat.
