The story of Oviedo’s history goes that it was first settled because of its accessibility to Solary’s Wharf, a landing on Lake Jesup that provided merchants an opportunity to distribute the products of a year-round growing season. With merchants came settlers who recognized the natural beauty of Oviedo’s lakes, rivers, and subtropical climate. Doctors offered convalescence on the shores of Lake Charm.
Today, Oviedo’s beginnings are reborn. The arrival of a multitude of shopping, medical and retirement services support the arrival of new “settlers” to Oviedo each day. Families enthusiastically enjoy Oviedo’s noted beauty and charm exhibited along the Cross Seminole Trail.
