Description

A newspaper article published by The Central Florida Press on June 20, 1930. According to the article, an individual (whose name is unreadable) arrived in Avon Park, Florida, on June 15, 1930. The article discusses the box-manufacturing capacity of a number of packing houses in Avon Park.

Avon Park was first settled in 1884 by Oliver Martin Crosby, a native of Connecticut who came to study wildlife in the Everglades. As president of the Florida Development Company, Crosby recruited settlers to the area, which was named Lake Forest in 1886. Avon Park was officially incorporated on January 1, 1926, and was named after the English town of Stratford-upon-Avon, which was the home of many of its early settlers.
