  • When the railroad extended its line into the phosphate field, there was a point convenient to the four big phosphate plants (Palmetto Phosphate, Kingsford, Bone Valley and Land Pebble) in operation in the vicinity of a large mulberry tree. It became custom to stop the trains and unload freight near the tree, and shipments were often marked "Put off at the big mulberry tree".
