6: The Ruins of Dupree Gardens

Off a rural road in Pasco County Florida sits what remains of a once-thriving grand botanical garden created by William Dupree. This Tampa Bay Attorney created this roadside tropical attraction in 1940 and more than 30,000 people paid admission to see it. Unfortunately ,it didn’t last long, thanks to the supply shortages of World War II. I walked through the ruins and did some research to help understand what once stood here, just 100 or so yards away from a modern neighborhood.
