This structure was built in 1909 and opened in 1910, employing many
area people and shipping citrus by rail and truck. The Blanton
Packing House was a working citrus plant until the 1989 killer
was like a museum within it's walls.
The Pioneer Museum and Village is in the process of preserving history
and now we are in the phase of re-constructing this Blanton Packing
House back to a working structure. The Museum has formed a Citrus
Committee of agricultural citrus growers, packers, processors, business
and professional members. They will help with historical information,
research, financial fund raising.
