Citrus Packing Plant: Weirsdale, Florida

Weirsdale is a little hamlet on State Road 42, south of Ocala in Marion County, where it intersects State Road 25. I saw this structure on the way to my sister's house on Lake Yale near Eustis. I mentioned the citrus freezes of the late '80's in my Summerport Beach post, and I would guess they put this plant out of business. Growers have been replanting in recent years, and I was heartened to see new, healthy citrus groves here and there.

This is an album, btw, click on picture or links to see the rest.
