During those same years, North-Central Florida experienced the "Orange Fever" that drove men to acquire large acreage of citrus trees as they sought to build empires with Victorian homes and extensive bank accounts from their trees of yellow gold. ---------The winter of 1894-95 however, was the citrus man's waterloo. It went down in history as The Great Freeze. Groves were wiped out and families went from rages to riches and again to rags in one generation. ---------- The McCredie family was a real family, the principals of which are all dead, buried in cemeteries in Micanopy, Ocala, Rochelle and Gainesville. This is their story, told by James McCredie's grandson.
