Celebration Timeline: The town of Celebration is not that old, but its history is nothing less than fascinating. The Celebration Foundation Website now includes a timeline about Celebration’s history. Look at the What We Do page, find New Urbanism and then check out the timeline!
It’s a brief history of this wonderful town…going all the way back to Disney’s early start in Florida. The timeline includes information about the various Celebration “villages”, buildings, events and occurrences that have helped make this community what it is today. Can you find the official groundbreaking date for Celebration?
Please contact us if you would like to add something to the Celebration Timeline! Include the date, a photograph, and a summary of around 25-75 words. We would love to keep building the timeline.
