The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum

People in Inverness still talk about the magical summer of 1961, when Elvis Presley came to Citrus County to film his ninth movie, "Follow That Dream." The climactic courtroom scene was filmed entirely in the Courtroom--which you can still visit--and included many townspeople as extras. Permanent exhibits in the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum include displays and artifacts devoted to Citrus County’s pre-history and its pioneer days, and to more recent developments, such as the impact of the citrus and film industries on Central Florida.
