The history of Mulberry dates back to the invention of the railroad and the industrial revolution way before trucking was available and practiced in the phosphate mining industry. Long before this time, it was widely known that phosphorus was essential to the production of fertilizer. Around the time of the industrial revolution, it was discovered that phosphorite, or phosphate rock, was an even richer source of phosphorus.
This specific form of Phosphorus was found in a chain of Central Florida towns called the “Bone Valley” in 1890. This area was rich with this natural resource and was already connected by a railway, originally intended to transport lumber. The most distinctive feature of the railway station was that it rested beneath the shade of a single mulberry tree. Naturally, as the phosphate mining capital blossomed into a city, it was named Mulberry. Cool!
Many other related industries have sprung up out of phosphate mining to support it. For example, aggregate transportation vehicles can be spotted all over the highways of Central Now, it is home to Trans-Phos, the premier bulk transportation company that is proud to haul phosphate all over the country as part of its storied reputation in trucking services.
