A.B. Newton was more than just the first Mayor of Winter Garden, Florida. He also published our town’s first newspaper, served as its first postmaster, operated its most popular general store and was to mustaches and bow ties what Abe Lincoln was to honesty and stovepipe hats.
We think we may have imagined that last part, just as we like to imagine ol’ A.B. laying the first brick on Plant Street, seeding the first orange grove and filling our water tower with rain he personally summoned from the sky. The truth is, there’s a lot we don’t really know about Mr. Newton’s life, but what we do know is how much we love the sense of community he established.
A.B. Newton and Company celebrates our hometown’s unique sense of place through an artful array of equally unique apparel and merchandise, all custom-designed by Winter Garden natives for Winter Garden residents and visitors alike. Giving a modern edge to vintage styles, A.B. Newton and Company proudly shares the welcoming spirit of old Florida with new generations of Floridians.
