Question of the Week – Spring Creek Dam

Posted by romeethredge on January 7, 2016

Last week I had a photo of parts of the old Spring creek dam in southern Seminole county. At this point the creek is already backed up as part of Lake Seminole. The dam is gone but the old powerhouse still exists and here below are several more photos.


Here’s one old photo I could find from 1938 Fishing below the powerhouse. If anyone has photos please let me know.

This week I have a plant identification question for you. What is this shrub that is blooming now and smells good?

    Tea Olive. I believe the correct botanical name is Osmantuhus fragrans.
