Serving as the county seat for Citrus County, Inverness is the home of the historic "old courthouse". Built in 1912, the old courthouse conjures up images of dime stores, ice cream parlors and grand architecture, some of which has been restored and preserved for future residents and visitors alike.

Recently returned to its former glory, the courthouse now serves as a museum and the centerpiece of a rejuvenated downtown square. Surrounded by fairs, parades, festivals, concerts, arts and craft shows, the old courthouse has seen it all over the past century it has stood watch.

Another great achievement on the Inverness downtown square is the restoration of the Valerie Theatre. The original theatre was built in 1926-27 during the silent movie era. Prices were 10 cents for children and 25 cents for adults. The City purchased it in 2009 and with community involvement a grand reopening was held for the Valerie Theatre Cultural Center in 2015.

So too is the newer Cooter Pond Park with its ever growing boardwalk and fishing pier. Cooter Pond is also the inspiration for the famous annual Cooter Festival both named for the local Cooter turtles which inhabit the pond.
