1. John & Annie Griffin Marker
Inscription.  In the early 1880s, John Wesley Griffin came to Central Florida with his father Dr. Abel Griffin and sister Henrietta E. Griffin. John Griffin purchased 6,000 acres of land near Kissimmee and was responsible for building the first saw and gristmill in the area. After John Griffin's death in 1882, his wife Annie inherited his land holdings and began selling off several parcels. In 1889, Annie Griffin platted a subdivision around Lake Lotus on present day Concord Drive, marking the first planned settlement in what would become Casselberry. Griffin's 1889 plat is still used in some of Casselberry's property descriptions to this day.
 
Erected by City of Casselberry.
