About the Mulberry Phosphate Museum
Free Fun Year Round
In the late 1800s, a man named Captain J. Frances LeBaron discovered that Peace River in Florida had a plethora of phosphate pebbles. What followed was a rush to tap Florida’s phosphate resources, leading to the development of Florida towns like Mulberry.
The Mulberry Phosphate Museum helps educate the public about this important mineral. The Museum covers many topics, including scientific perspectives on phosphate, how and where it is used, and how it has led to the development of Central Florida’s business. Admission to the museum is free; there are meeting rooms that can be booked in advance and private guided tours can also be arranged.
