Plant City, Florida

Plant City does not get its name from the surrounding agricultural industry, which has greatly added to the City's growth, but from Henry Bradley Plant, a railroad tycoon. In 1884, Henry B. Plant extended the South Florida Railroad into the town and one year later, when the town was incorporated, it was renamed in his honor.

Located in the middle of the west coast of Florida, approximately 25 miles east of Tampa, immediately west of Lakeland, and 70 miles west of Orlando, Plant City offers a down-home feel but is an ideal location to be near all that the Tampa Bay area has to offer.
