Published in 2006 by long-time volunteers Evelyn Bash and Marjorie Pritchett, “A History of Crystal River, Florida” was a much needed and welcomed publication giving the reader great history of the Crystal River area touching on Prehistoric Times up to 2004. This book is available for purchase at the Museum Store at the Coastal Heritage Museum, price is $8.00 tax included. The Citrus County Historical Society and Crystal River Heritage Council have published other history booklets and pamphlets for a small charge. Stop by and visit the museum and the museum store soon!
