Additional Details:
Dedicated 1929 by Former President Calvin Coolidge. Way back before Columbus discovered America, yes, even before our saviour was born, probably back in the days of King Tut, 3500 years ago, a little Cypress tree started reaching for the sky and sending its roots into the soil of central Florida. And through all the years of Spanish, British and American colonization stood this majestic Cypress. 125 feet high, 47 feet around at the base, with a diameter of 17 1/2 feet. It is Florida's principal rival of Giant California Redwoods, supposed to be the oldest and largest tree of its kind in the United States, and is now one of the most popular sightseeing spots.
