The late, great Bob White Orange Company
Sitting between a highway and a railroad track, just north of DeLeon Springs, Bob White Oranges has gone to seed, so to speak. Begun in 1921 or before, the end began in 1983 with a hard freeze. The oranges died. The famous Bob White Oranges were no more. What was once a state-of-the-art facility now lies foul and abandoned and is slowly tumbling to the ground.
