The station of the Plant System was located here in the early days of this budding tobacco center. During the struggle for Cuban Independence Ybor City became a nest of insurgents. Through this station passed conspirators, spies, and many notable leaders of the Cuban Revolutionary Junta.

Jose Marti, the Liberator, arrived on his first historic visit the stormy night of November 25, 1891. He was met by a small band of patriots huddled together on the platform carrying lanterns to watch out for snakes and alligators.
