353: Abraham Dupont

Posted By Ashley Perez, Friday, April 4, 2014
Adress: 101 West Flagler Street Miami FL, 33130 
Abraham Dupont  (1783-1837)
History is defined as the study of past events, Abraham Dupont was an important pioneer that represents the history of Flagler County Florida. I have  dedicated a garden in front of the Miami Museum of history for Abraham Dupont  because he represents the root history of Flagler County.  In 1825 Abraham Dupont and his family were the first to reside in Flagler County ,as well as were the first family to establish plantations in this area. Abraham's father received a Spanish land grant but was unable to establish it. Abraham took this commitment that was once his fathers, and established his home as well as several plantation lands in Flagler County. Abraham grew crops as well as changed the way Florida County would see crop farming in the near future. Now, Florida County is a County flourishing in the agriculture production. Student that reside and study  in Flagler county have established different agricultural programs to make sure that all farmers as well as land owners are caring for their crops, and teaching others about the importance of agriculture. To my opinion, Abraham Dupont was a big influence in the agriculture production of this County as well as an inspiration to members of this community. Abraham was a very important part of Florida's history and he deserves his garden which has been planted in front of the Miami Museum of history. I hope that many people learn about Abraham Dupont and his contribution and dedication to the Flagler County area.
