Welcome to Inverness Florida
The sister city of Inverness, Scotland, and the Citrus County Seat, Inverness is a hub of local government activity and business. In 1891 the Florida Orange and Transit Company deeded a one-acre square known as Courthouse Square, to the County to build a center of County government.
A wooden Victorian structure was erected on the square from 1892 until 1911, the County then decided to build a "new" courthouse during the prosperous times of the phosphate boom.
For over fifty years this courthouse (now known as the historic courthouse) on the square served the needs of Citrus County. In the 1970s, however, the County was bursting at the seams and expansion was necessary. A new courthouse for Inverness was built next door.
