This Lake Placid, FL mural, honoring Richard Archbold and the Archbold Biological Station is 184' wide by 8' high and was completed in July of 2007. The artist was Keith Goodson, who has painted several murals in the Lake Placid area.
In 1941, after leading 3 biological expeditions to New Guinea, Archbold founded the Archbold Biological Station at the Red Hill Estate. The Estate was donated by John A Roebling II. The Station is now recognized internationally for its ecological research on the Florida scrub. At the far right of this photo is Willie Chapel, who retired in 2008 after 50 years of service with Glades Electric.
