Dr. Philip Phillips envisioned the future of Orlando. Then he sculpted it. Artfully. Powerfully. Dr. Phillips came to Florida in 1885 with $5,000 and a vision. He began with cattle, citrus and real estate. He cultivated the land which yielded an empire. His limitless dreams survive as a powerful force shaping the growth of Central Florida. Under his hand the wilderness bore much more than fruit. Under his hand industry grew, homes were built, schools were constructed, families thrived. Dr Phillips cultivated the land and nurtured a community. [From the Sand Lake Campus of Orlando Regional Medical Center]
