In the mid-1850s, Dr. J.D. Starke, stricken with malaria, led a group of slaves, similarly stricken, to the north side of an open pine wooded lake that provided clear and clean water to avoid further malaria outbreaks. The camp built by the group provided a base of operations from which to commute during the day to work the fields near Lake Apopka and rest at night. As the camp grew into a village, it took the name Starke Lake, a name the lake upon which the group settled bears to this day. The city's population increased further after the American Civil War as Confederate soldiers and their families settled into the area, including Captain Bluford Sims and General William Temple Withers who wintered at the location. Captain Sims received a land grant for a 74-acre parcel to the west of Starke Lake in what is now the downtown portion of Ocoee on October 5, 1883. I86, Captain Sims, along with a group of original settlers, led an effort to have the town platted and changed the name to Ocoee, after a river he grew up near in Tennessee. Ocoee is a Cherokee Indian word anglicized from uwagahi, meaning "apricot vine place"and this inspired the choice of the city's flower.

Rent 2 Own Orlando has relied on third party websites to gather information contained on this site and therefore is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of the information. Some properties which appear for sale and approved as Lease with a Right to Purchase on this website, or other sites linked to this site, may subsequently be sold or may no longer be available when official approval is issued.
We work very hard to keep information accurate and up to dated, however information may change hourly and is very difficult to be 100% accurate and updated every hour of every day. Do not apply for this program with the hopes of specific homes to lease with a right to purchase. Throughout the approval process (5 to 6 weeks from application to move in) the homes hoped for have a very high probability of being sold since they are all "For Sale" houses and are advertised to the world continuously through the web. The correct order of proceeding is to register, apply, get approved then searching for specific homes in area of choice. Doing it any other way would more than likely lead to disappointment and frustration.
