Town's City Hall

Apopka is known for having one of the longest-serving mayors in the United States. John H. Land, first elected in 1949, served for 61.25 years (with a short three-year gap), making him the longest-serving mayor in Florida and longest-serving full-time mayor in the United States through 2014.  

Proceeding Mayors were Joe Kilsheimer and current native Bryan Nelson.
