City of Inverness, Florida

Inverness is a city in Citrus County, Florida. Since the Florida city lies at the foot Tsala Apopka and Henderson lakes, Inverness, with inver meaning mouth of the lake, seems to be an appropriate name. Inverness is best known for being a “Gateway Community” by the Florida Trail Association and has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation and US Forest Service as a Tree City USA. Residents and visitors alike are welcomed to take part in the family-focused event of music, games, and crafts called the Great American Cooterfestival, named after the cooter turtle.
