County History
Citrus County was created in 1887. The Citrus County area was formerly part of Hernando County.
It was named for the county's citrus groves.
Citrus production declined dramatically after the "Big Freeze" of 1894-1895: today, large citrus production comes from only one large grove.
The original Citrus County seat was Mannfield (also spelled, incorrectly, Mansfield or Mannsfeld in some sources).
The county seat was later moved to Inverness, with only a street and a pond remaining of the original county seat.

Cities
Crystal River * Inverness (originally named Tompkinsville)

Other Unincorporated Communities
Chassahowitzka * Holder * Meadowcrest * Pineola * Red Level 

Former towns
Mannfield (original county seat, now a ghost town)  * Orleans * Stage Pond (Cemetery still remains) *
Arlington * Fairmount (town site is now Meadowcrest Industrial Park)
[source: wikipedia]

A researcher writes in:  Some of the names of towns of yesteryear are Fairmount, Mt. Lee, Oakdale, Stage Stand, Stage Pond, Orleans, Rosehill, Pinola, Bradleys, Mannfield, Arlington and Cordeal
