Altamonte Springs ws founded in 1882 by Dr Washington Kilmer when it received it's first name of Altamont. The name was then changed in 1920 to the current rendition we know today.
Residents can now enjoy the benefits of the outdoor complex Uptown Altamonte where the daily visitor can find classic boutique shops, eateries, the Crane's Roost Park and the Altamonte Mall and theater complex. Part of the complex is the Lofts at Altamonte where residents can also enjoy the ability to walk to fine dining and shopping.
