The Livery Stable Mural

Add to plan Remove from plan
This mural features the livery stable, which housed the Bell Fruit Company, one of the most important businesses in early Brooksville. The building still stands on Main St. and Hendricks Ave.

The gentleman driving the fruit wagon is Mr. Lem St. Clair, the Great Uncle of local African-American historian Mable Sims of Twin Lakes, a section of Hernando County. Mr. St. Clair was one of five brothers who lived in Twin Lakes in the late 1800s, and worked for many years for the Bell Fruit Company. He was named Great Brooksvillian in honor of his contributions to the community. This mural is a tribute to an important business in early Brooksville and those whose work sustained it.
