Local history: Fenton Street

Fenton Street is a short double-ended dead end running east and west from Apopka-Vineland Road along a section line between Vineland and Dr. Phillips. It was most likely named after an early resident of the area (just like nearby Smith-Bennett Road, Darlene Drive, and Kilgore Road). To the west, it is paved in chipseal, and provides access to Progress Energy's Vineland Substation and several houses. To the east, the only developed properties along the road are the two-grave Vineland Cemetery and a BellSouth cell tower. It is this section that I will discuss.
