Casselberry Florida

Casselberry Florida

In the mid 1900s, Hibbard Casselberry established a property tax free town in his name. Casselberry, Florida began to grow in population and citizens eventually voted to have property taxes in 1976. The city’s unique background is one of the many highlights. The city was also once home to the Seminole Speedway, which operated between 1945 and 1954. The speedway hosted stock car, modified, and motorcycle racing. The community is now more quite and residential and has developed several positive foundations working towards safe as well as green living.

The Casselberry Fire Department developed “Operation Get Out Alive” that turned out successful in keeping fires minimal and under control. Also, Arbor Day Foundation was developed in response to the growing concern for the environment. The foundation is non- profit and educational; the organization works to conserve and plant trees. Casselberry features over thirty lakes and ponds, the largest being Lake Howell. A site see one can’t miss out on while in Casselberry is The Crystal Ballroom and Reel Feel recording. The Crystal Ballroom has been called the city’s “hidden jewel” and is one of the most popular wedding venues in the United States. The Crystal Ballroom is designed to warm hearts and bring magic to life; the spectacular venue really is a hidden jewel.

Hibbard Casselberry intended his city to be amazing and unique; the city continues to live up to his standard. Positive community development and beautiful architecture help the city continue to grow and thrive.
