Description

A painting by Bettye Reagan, a local artist in Central Florida, inspired by a photograph of the Dakin family in Georgetown, Florida. The family consisted of George W. B. Dakin and Anna Marie Olcott Dakin, along with their children: Florence Dakin, Leonard Dakin, Paul Dakin, and Jesse Messmore Dakin. The Dakins owned Racimo Plantation, an orange grove along the St. Johns River, in 1887. Within the next decade, Leonard Dakin developed the Racimo Plantation with 5,000 orange trees, 40 laborers, and a packinghouse. The grove was destroyed by a freeze in 1895.
