August H. Butts, Businessman and Farmer

(1884–1955)

After the real estate bust, he purchased 3,500 acres in Boca Raton that had been vacated by speculators to grow beans. Butts Farms became one of Boca Raton’s main employers during the Depression. The farm provided housing, a church, a school, and a general store for its employees. Arvida Corporation eventually purchased the land for development.
