Crystal River in Citrus County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Crystal Street Historic Oak Canopy
The Village Improvement Society, led by Mrs. Nickabud Barco, also encouraged the Town Council to come up with a way to stop cows and pigs from roaming the streets to improve sanitation problems and, ultimately, overall living conditions.
This group was the forerunner of the Women's Club formed in 1921. Its legacy lives on in the beauty of the remaining trees sheltering the street.
Over a hundred years later, only fifteen heritage oak trees are left standing, yet they still form their beautiful cathedral-like canopy.
Erected by City of Crystal River.
