We are home based in Orlando, but we still offer free pick-up and delivery for our rug cleaning Oviedo customers. If you are not familiar with Oviedo it is located in seminole county and settlers began to populate in 1875, though actually established in 1925
The Beginning of Oviedo’s Growth
There where many individuals that played a role in establishing Oviedo’s relatively short history. George Powell was one of the first settler’s who ran a large plot of land, some know this as the “Powell Settlement”, today consists mostly of the northern part of the city as well as the downtown area. One of George Powell’s sons Lewis, is known for being John Wilkes Booth’s main accomplice in the assassination plan to kill President Abraham Lincoln.
George’s friend, Henry Foster, was a large part in enhancing Oviedo’s citrus and celery industry, when it looked like it was all but done for. He helped provide reliable transportation to deliver its goods. He paid for a railway link to Oviedo. Agriculture was Oviedo’s main source of income up through the 1940s. Foster was also responsible for establishing the Lake Charm, an area to help encourage visitors from the up north to vacation in the winter. A grower named Butler Boston is also credited for helping establish the citrus boom in Oviedo. Butler Boston was a child of an African-American doctor who moved to Oviedo in 1871 to establish his medical practice and purchase a farm. Boston was so good at his craft that he was hired to by other field owners to help them succeed as well.. He was the voice of a large black community in the area, and was spent most of his time improving their educational opportunities. Though this was just one trade he was good at, he also was a phenomenal bricklayer and helped plan and construct the Antioch Baptist Church. Today his name still is seen all over Oviedo, such as Boston Street, Boston Alley, Boston Cemetery and many other places.
All the Chickens?
Our oriental rug cleaning technicians always comment on the vast amount of chickens that roam the downtown area. There are such a large amount of them freely wondering the area, our techs will constantly talk about how they have to stop and wait as the chicken crosses the road. We tell our team that rug cleaning can wait, and to treat the area and animals with the same respect as the animals in their own home. We also know that the city ordinances help protect these animals, and we love it as it brings a special type of charm to the area. So when in Oviedo make sure to watch our for the chicken crossing the rd.
