I completely forgot about the old Winter Park mall. I lived around Winter Park for most of my life, and I used to go there. I remember my father telling me about the fire that once burned it down. I guess learning about the history of the area that I grew up in will be very interesting. I know that story- telling by parents and etc. is one of the main ways to learn about history outside of the classroom. I'm surprised that for this class, we are doing an assignment in which we listen to stories to learn about history, which is completely different from what I would expect from a usual history class.
