Lakeland, Florida: Forgotten Citrus Center Monument #3

One of several widely-scattered, slowly crumbling monoliths proclaiming that Polk County is the Citrus Center of something.
County Line Rd, Lakeland, FL
Take I-4 to the exit for County Line Rd. When you come off the exit you'll want to turn right onto County line rd. then stay straight, the first intersection will be Hwy 92/E Baker St. if you are at that intersection you will see the Monument ahead on the right before the railroad tracks (Caution: This intersection is very dangerous and there is not much room to pull off the road.).

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?

Another Citrus Center Monument

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!
