Karon Grunwell Buckley - The Florida Pioneer Museum
Our guest speaker for the March 3rd meeting at the museum is South Florida native Karon Grunwell Buckley on the subject of the Florida Pioneer Museum on Krome Avenue in Florida City.
| Currently on display at the museum is a collection of fruit and vegetable carton labels from prominent shippers of yesteryear. From Florida City to Arch Creek in Dade County, packing houses were erected at the turn of the century along the Florida East Coast railroad tracks. By 1926, the Seaboard Airline Railway extended their mid-Florida route to Homestead, encouraging more packing houses to open.|
