Meet Cecil Clemons, Gatorama

Palmdale, Florida

From the RA Vault: In 1985, the Roadside America Team first encountered the unforgettable Cecil Clemons -- at his gator farm attraction (just down the road from the equally unforgettable Cypress Knee Museum). We chatted about how things went all to hell for highway businesses and tourist attractions.

Cecil got out of his chair twice -- once to collect admission from visitors at the cash register, and then to show us how much a gator loves a bag of white bread.
