is a quaint small town on Highway 19 just south of the City of
Tavares. The town has a pretty waterfront area on the west
side of Little Lake Harris with lakefront homes overlooking
the waterfront. The town's founder, William J. Howey, started
buying Lake County Land in 1914. By 1920 he had amassed about
60,000 raw acres for his "City Inevitable". The Florida Land
Boom tripled Howey's enterprises and the City was incorporated
in on May 8th 1925. The Florida legislature officially changed
the name to Howey-in-the-Hills on May 13, 1927 to reflect the
beauty of the lakes and hills which Bill Howey touted as the
"Alps of Florida".
