Circa 1870s

George Washington Simmons and Ann McDougald Simmons were married at Silver Springs in 1856. They soon moved to the Orlando area where they lived near Curry's Ford for a number of years. Then in 1873 they settled at Taylor Creek near Fort Christmas on the Henry Hodges improvement.
They moved there with eight of their nine children ranging in ages from fourteen to newborn. Their oldest daughter, not quite sixteen, had already married. The family farmed the land and raised livestock. The one room house represents the simplest structures, which was added to throughout the years by connecting rooms with cover porches and breezeways.
