Research Paper Topic
During this class, we have studied the development of Winter Park, focusing on racial division and division of the town based on class status. The tour that we took also focused on the development of Hannibal Square, an area of low economic status in Winter Park. For my research paper, I plan to examine the other side of the spectrum, the side of development of the wealthy community. I plan to examine the early businesses designed to draw in the wealthy, as well as how wealthy communities were built for the rich. Through these two topics, I will see how these businesses and communities have impacted the economy, as well as whether or not it succeeded as a resort for the wealthy.
