Citrus County



As part of his journey through Florida, Hernando DeSoto came through Citrus County around 1539 and crossed the Withlacoochee River near the end of present Turner Camp Road.  Hernando County was named in honor of DeSoto and was established in 1843. Citrus County was originally part of Hernando County; but through the efforts of Senator Austin S. Mann, the Florida legislature established Citrus County on June 2, 1887.  Citrus County was named in honor of the fruit as a robust citrus growing industry developed in the eastern part of the area and it became a focus of intense economic expansion soon after the War Between the States.
