Metropolitan at Lake Eola
Things have come a long way since 1922 when Orlando Memorial High School stood at the corner of Rosalind Avenue and Washington Street. Today the Metropolitan at Lake Eola stands ready to welcome permanent residents with homes that overlook Lake Eola Park and border the vibrant neighborhoods of downtown and South Eola.
Orlando’s second high school was built by J.C. Hanner in 1922 on this site with a frontage of 301.65 feet on Rosalind Ave. and 231 feet on Washington St. Its official dedication on December 3, 1922, featured an address by Dr. Fons A. Hathway. The school was dedicated to “The Orange County Boys Who Gave Their Lives in the World War”.
The school was later replaced by another (now Howard Middle School) at the corner of Summerlin Ave. and Robinson St.
In June of 1961, the building was sold to Roland M. Mumford, president of the Meyer Hotel of Jacksonville, for $400,077.77. The old school building was torn down and the Robert Meyer Hotel opened here with 250 rooms on May 15, 1963, at a cost of $4,000,000. On December 1, 1972, the Robert Meyer Motor Inn became the Kahler Plaza Inn, was later the Harley Hotel, and then joined the Sheraton chain as the Four Points Hotel by Sheraton Orlando Downtown.
