Print Title: Rusted and Rustic

This is an original print that I photographed. This photograph features the Strawn Citrus Packinghouse near Deleon Springs, Florida.

History:
The Strawn Historic Citrus Packing House District (also known as the Bob White Historic Citrus Packing House District) is a U.S. historic district (designated as such on September 13, 1993) located in DeLeon Springs, Florida in Volusia County. It contains 12 historic buildings and 3 structures. The packing house is in a state of abandoned decay and has not been operation since 1983.

The packinghouse began processing oranges under the "Bob White" label in 1882, when Theodore Strawn built the original packinghouse and ran a prosperous business. A fire destroyed the original building, and Theodore Strawn built the current structure, designed to be fireproof, in 1921.

Back-to-back freezes in the early 1980s killed most citrus groves in West Volusia, and put an end to packing operations.
