It was February of 2006 when Evelyn C. Bash and Marge K. Pritchett published a book called “A History Of Crystal River, Florida”. Even though they were not natives of Crystal River, I though it to be a very interesting read, especially considering no other writings were done to this magnitude. This collection of information took a lot of heart-felt time and is well appreciated. A copy of their complete work is available for purchase but I would like to point out the highlights of important information regarding our special place called Crystal River.
