Still a newbie @ 2 years. I remember when there was nothing but dirt south of 466A. . Seriously, I'm amazed at the growth and changes that have taken place in the short time I've been here. I am really enjoying hearing the stories from those who have been here for a long time...hope to hear more.

Here's one Skybo- the road we all know as Rolling Acres at the corner of Walgreens and Home Depot going to 466 used to be a dirt road years ago. If you had a Jeep, you could go down it but otherwise, not good. I used to live in Wildwood and worked at the Daily Sun production plant on Rolling Acres. I had to drive all the way to 441 and work my way from there. Before Target and such were there, it was only a drug store (Eckerds) on the corner next to the Fiesta Bowling Alley. When that road was finally done years ago-

I did the Happy Dance!!! I brought my Mom here from Orlando in 2000 and she bought a house in Oak Meadows, behind Target. At that time, it was all woods all the way until 441.

Memories!!!
