The Dade City Citrus Museum is a small local history museum in Dade City, Florida. It traces the city?s ?citrusy past?.

As history will tell you, Dade City, Florida was once the Hershey, Pennsylvania of orange juice. It was once the top place to get a good deal of juicy and natural vitamin C. However, as time went by, folks started to lose taste for non-concentrated juice. Add to this the fact that globalization made Brazil a ?better? source for citrus products, and the city?s citrus industry was doomed. In 2004, what was once considered as the largest juice processing plant in the world, the Lykes-Pasco plant, closed its doors.

Luckily, in 2005, the Dade City Citrus Museum was founded and opened by Local businessman, Jim Guedry. The site features several displays that are mostly about the industry.
