SUNDAY MARCH 8, 2015 AT 3:00 – 5:00 PM
CRUMP HOMESTEAD: 4955 CRUMP ROAD
We stopped a gas station
from being built near the
rural intersection of Crump and Miccosukee!!!
This farmland and homesite was settled by Adlai “Jack” and Rosetta Crump many decades ago.
As neighbors, we’ve protected water, trees, dark skies, street safety, home values and a rural way of life. A year ago in March 2014, more than one hundred people gathered near this same corner for a panel discussion with Leon County neighbors to learn about the proposed gas station & convenience store. We talked about working together to Keep It Rural and a coalition was born.
Today, we celebrate the preserved historic farmland as part of Leon County’s rural heritage. This farmland and homesite was settled by Adlai “Jack” and Rosetta Crump many decades ago. Adlai Stevenson “Jack” Crump, lived in Leon County his entire life. A business owner, community leader and successful farmer, Crump was awarded the “Outstanding Farmer in America,” by the U.S.D.A. Jack and Rosetta Crump’s family are known for their entrepreneurial leadership and long standing community service. Crump Road was named after this Leon County family of many generations.
So come on out and enjoy live music, locally-grown food, and real down-home fun! Visit with your neighbors. Bring a camp chair and some food or drinks to share.
The Keep It Rural team will also update us on the incredible progress being made working with the county to protect other rural places. See you there!
–Your Leon County Neighbors & Friends
