Description

George W. B. Dakin with his daughter, Florence Dakin, and wife, Anna Marie Olcott Dakin, at the Racimo Plantation, an orange grove along the St. Johns River, in 1887. The caption incorrectly cites the name of Dakin's wife as Anne Maria Dakin purchased property near Georgetown, Florida, in the early 1880s and settled his family there. Within the next decade, his son, Leonard Dakin, who took this photograph, developed the Racimo Plantation with 5,000 orange trees, 40 laborers, and a packinghouse. The grove was destroyed by a freeze in 1895.
