The Macy Wagon Works

George E. Macy's business in downtown Orlando was the largest factory in Florida in the late 1800s.

It produced wagons and buggies that were uniquely engineered to traverse the sandy roadways of the pioneer era.

Mr. Macy was a primary donor to the Pine Castle Union Church building fund in 1900.
