The moniker “The Orange Blossom State” wasn’t given by accident. Florida’s first orange trees were allegedly planted by Ponce de Leon around 1500 and have become intertwined with the state’s identity ever since. The Orange Blossom Trail Association looked to capitalize on that familiarization by issuing this map of their proposed route through Central Florida – the state’s “most scenic highway”.
The group was organized to represent various entities along the neatly packaged and promoted chain of highways (primarily U.S. 441) from Jennings to Miami. Text on the side and along the verso outline some of the highlights of the towns participating in the association.
