George Wells Potter (492)

Posted By Christoher M. Duarte, Friday, April 25, 2014

George Wells Potter, Artist and Businessman


Potter arrived in Florida at the age of 18 and by 1888 was Dade County’s first surveyor.  He co-founded Lainhart & Potter Building Materials with George Lainhart, the oldest extant company in Palm Beach County. An artist by training, his early drawings of area people and places recorded pioneer life in south Florida.

The reason I chose this location to plant a garden in honor of George Wells Potter was because of the memories I have at this park. I planted at Concord Park in Westchester. I grew up in the area and I spent many days after school and during the summer at Concord playing basketball and football with my friends. I could even say that this place was where I learned to love the outdoors and sports.
