In 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower envisioned a way for U.S. cities to create formal partnerships with foreign cities. Believing that City to City, Person to Person, we could exchange information and ideas in order to develop friendships and deepen cultural understanding and peace. This vision became a reality with the formation of Sister Cities International. Mount Dora Sister Cities
