Lake Mary’s beginning dates back the 1800’s when the lake (and eventually the village) was named after the wife of a minister who settled on the lake’s northern shore. The village of Lake Mary,Florida began with the combining of two tiny settlements, Bent’s Station and Belle Fontaine.

The Lake Mary Chamber of Commerce was established in January of 1923. It has been active continuously since and has the distinction of being the oldest one in the state of Florida.
