  • Last week my husband and I took a short trip to Winter Garden, a town not too far from Orlando.

    We went to the historic downtown district with its trendy businesses housed in restored storefronts from as far back as the early 1900s.

    A restaurant we went in was originally Cappleman Brothers Grocery Store, built in 1912.

    As my husband read the menu, I read about the history of the building -- the original brick, the gothic stained glass panels in the front window that came from an old Presbyterian church.
