Frank Evans Center

Frank Evans Center

In the oldest part of the city of Lake Mary, listen to legend based upon facts, about a frontier town that grew up around a railroad depot, founded by immigrants, and named for the wife of the first reverend.

This early 20th century building has served as a senior center, a city hall, and a chamber of commerce, before evolving into an historic museum in the center of old Lake Mary where it is still the heart of the community just like the man for whom it is named.
