    WEBSTER of florida in the house of representatives Monday, January 12, 2015 Mr. WEBSTER of Florida. Mr. Speaker, it is my privilege today to recognize the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the Town of Pine Castle, Florida.



    Pine Castle's rich history begins in the years immediately following the Civil War. Originally, Pine Castle was a private residence erected by Will Harney, a poet and settler from Kentucky. He built his home from the abundant pines of Central Florida and dubbed it his ``pine castle.'' Soon, the areas of modern-day Edgewood, Belle Isle and the Conway chain of lakes came to be known as ``Pine Castle.'' In 1915, the Town of Pine Castle was formally incorporated.

    I join the residents of Pine Castle in celebrating this historical milestone. It is truly an honor to serve the residents of Pine Castle in the U.S. House of Representatives.
