Forgotten Citrus Center Monument #3
This year in Florida, my goal was to visit all the "forgotten" citrus towers. Tower #3 is standing right next to the railroad tracks. Though the intersection is super-busy and dangerous, I managed to get a couple pics of the tower. But why is there engraving on only two sides?[Paula, 03/10/2017]
Citrus Center Monument
Looks like the Lakeland Citrus Center Monument has been cleaned up some![Nikki Knight, 03/12/2011]
Another Citrus Center Monument sits on the corner of Hwy 92 and County Line Rd right beside railroad tracks. It looks like it is about to fall over and it's not kept up very well. I didn't even know what it was and I have been driving past this thing for years![Nikki Knight, 09/05/2007]
