Seaboard Railway

The Orange Blossom Special

The historic Seaboard Air Line Railway was built in 1926 during the Seaboard’s push into South Florida to compete with Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway. With new railroad came the promise of an increased tourist trade and  a greater market for the local crops. The building is a fine example of the Mediterranean style architecture of the era, with its arched entryway, stucco walls, and barrel tile roof.
