Local legend says that Henry B. Plant never came to Plant City, Florida, the town named for him. That may be true; however, he played a significant role in the development of the city. In the mid-1880s, he extended his South Florida Railroad through Plant City, providing a means for growth and prosperity. Plant City was incorporated in 1885 in Hillsborough County. The Henry B. Plant Railroad Historic Society uses space on the 3rd floor featuring layouts in operational dioramas in N, HO, O and G scales.
