Fairmount

Fairmount is located in Citrus County.  I went here on 5/15/2016.

According to the Ghosttown website,

Settled in 1885. By 1886, the population was 75. There was a post office, church, steam sawmill, blacksmith shop, tinsmith, hotel, and general store. It was mostly orange groves and was wiped out in the big freeze of 1894-95. Information provided by the Citrus County Historical Museum. By Mike Woodfin
