Visitor Tips and News About Mulberry Phosphate Museum
Mulberry Phosphate Museum
Highlights fossils of prehistoric Florida and the phosphate industry. Interesting if you're into phosphate![Ronald S. Dwan, 09/20/2005]
The fossil remains of a 10 million year old Baleen whale are displayed. A time capsule is buried on the front lawn of the museum, under a mulberry bush (of course), to be opened in 2076. Mulberry claims to be "Phosphate Center of the World." The phosphate mining industry was a powerful political force in Florida, as the state's sh*tty limerock roads will attest.
