Inverness, Florida

It’s too beautiful a day to stay inside! That’s what we say a lot during the summertime.

When you look outside, it’s bright and sunny with puffy white clouds.

Of course it’s 90 degrees…feels like 100! lol

So we take a drive!

This time we went to the tiny town of Inverness, FL to walk around downtown. Inverness is the county seat of Citrus County and very close to where we live.

The old Courthouse is a museum now so we plan to go back again soon when it’s open to go inside.

I thought of my friend, Debbi and her blog HERE when I looked up in the window and saw this! (she takes amazing photos of buildings and homes in Charleston!)

We had a wonderful day and saw lots of neat sights! I may just stretch this out to another post or two…like any good blogger will do!

I like small towns, the buildings are so interesting and you can walk and see downtown! Looks like Inverness, FL would be one of those towns! Thanks for the tour. I look forward to more. Happy Monday!

They used to make buildings with style, didn't they.

Inverness, Citrus County (love that name!) looks like a beautiful town with wonderful architecture to admire, it was great to take a tour around there with you today.
Happy Mosaic Monday!

Love photos of old towns and buildings--great photos--thanks--
and a thing of interest maybe--
I just learned that our Brevard County Zoo during the month of September has a special rate--On Sundays it is only $5 each and on Tuesdays, it is $3 each for FL residents with ID--can't go wrong for that price--(reg it is $16)
love and laughter, di

Well, since you asked, I just posted a Court house from the northeastern part of our state for Monday Murals. I like the looks of this one. Nice mosaic. Stay cool!

I had to ask hubby where our courthouse is and then I remembered, it's in the community hall building where we have our garden club meetings. No, not worth photographing. :-) (that's rural living for you)
The courthouse at Inverness is very symmetrical in design and I like the cupola on the top with the clock.

Barb said...

It's hard for me to imagine those high temps! We saw frost when we hiked this morning! That courthouse/museum is a very stately building. Love the twin palms.

Susie said...

I always love old courthouse buildings. They are just beautiful. Diane, I know what you mean about how pretty it is outside and the heat...But we want to enjoy some of this great weather...even if it makes us sweat. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

What a beautiful courthouse museum building! I hope the recent tropical storm did no damage to your area of Florida, Diane.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

What a fun historic road trip. Good to stop by and say hi sweet friend :)

BeachGypsy said...

thank you my sweet friend for the mention on your post today! Loved looking around this little scenic town with you today!....my kind of place! I could roam small towns all day...they have so much charm and neat things to see....usually old architecture and you know how I love that! Does this town have an old fashioned drug store/soda fountain, or old fashioned post office?

Loved my tour with you, and your photos were very interesting.

Nice to see the older buildings. Our entire community and everything within 5 miles of home was Everglades only a dozen yeas ago.

bettyl-NZ said...

It looks like one of those sleepy little towns that most people just drive through. Your photos are really great and show off this lovely place!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

What a lovely place to visit - the photos are perfection. You live in such a pretty area and find the best things to post about. See you tomorrow I hope - I'm about ready.

ann said...

Old courthouses are indeed interesting and are always the centerpiece of their little town. Good choice for a drive. I missed the previous post to comment. You have some pretty amazing photos of the egret. He put on quite show for you, didn't he? Pretty Cool, Diane.
