1. Bumby Hardware Building. Originally from England, Joseph Bumby, Sr. relocated to Orlando and built a large, Late Victorian Commercial-style building across the street from his warehouse. The red brick structure was one of Central Florida's first non-wooden buildings. Bumby Hardware became a major retailer in Downtown Orlando and was operated by Bumby until his death in 1911. His sons continued to operate the business for several decades, but eventually closed the store in the 1960s and leased the building briefly to Goodwill (Submitted on April 15, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
