8" M2 howitzer in Williston Fl.

Post by Steve Webb » Sat Aug 27, 2011 12:47 pm

I have been by this many times going from Ft. Myers to Tallahassee but have never able to stop until yesterday. Williston is on US 27 just NW of Ocala Fl. Funny how these are tucked away all over the place. I live 4 1/2 hours away so not going to go get any detail pic's for anyone.

Thanks for the pics Steve it is a neat little park. The trees have really surrounded it over the years.

Yes it's a passed by spot. It looks like they have a sinkhole fenced off in there also. I am an electrical contractor so that powerplant is pretty neat to see.
