Gotha/Windermere Real Estate
Gotha is located in Orange County, Florida, near Orlando. Gotha is located between Ocoee and Windermere and had a population of 1,915 at the 2010 census.
The town of Gotha was founded in 1885 by German immigrant H. A. Hempel. Hempel Avenue, the “main street” of Gotha, is named in his honor. After buying 1000 acres, the majority of acreage still designated as United States Territory, he laid out a town and named it after his birthplace of Gotha, Germany. He then mailed promotional pamphlets to northern cities, advertising the warm climate and mild winters. In time, several German American families moved to and settled in and around Gotha.
