WE DID IT!
Over four years ago, a small group of Citrus County concerned citizens created the nonprofit group, Old Homosassa Historical Preservation Society (OHHPS). Their main purpose at that time was to save the Old Homosassa Water Tower from destruction. After purchasing the water tower from the Homosassa Special Water District, the group joined with the Citrus County Historical Society as the Old Homosassa Heritage Council (OHHC).
OHHC crunched the numbers and decided that $60,000 was needed to restore the historical landmark.
Thanks to the generous monetary donations, numerous fundraisers, and the energy and dedication of the members, OHHC was able to reach that goal. The repair and restructuring took place as soon as the group raised the first $25,000 back in June of 2016. In August of 2018 the water tower was painted! Lighting was installed in May 2019 and only landscaping and fencing remains to be completed.
Thank you to everyone who donated money, raffle items, energy, and time to make this possible.
