  • Today in Levy County History: The Albion Phosphate District

    Levy historian

    At the March 1896 meeting of the American Institute of Mining Engineers, a report was given on the Albion phosphate district located in the northeast corner of Levy County. The area embraced a territory about four miles wide and six miles long. The Florida Central and Peninsular Railroad, which ran from Fernandina, a shipping port on the Atlantic, to the Cedar Keys, on the Gulf of Mexico, passed through the center of the district.

  • A place of refuge

    While on the big island of Hawaii, Linda, J.R., and I chanced to come across a site known as, The Place of Refuge.  The object of war, in those days before the missionaries came to their island, was to exterminate the enemy, which included anyone who belonged to the opposing side.  Those too old, too young, or those unable to fight could find safety in the sanctuary.  Defeated warriors also came to the “pu’uhonua,” where they could wait in safety until the battle was over.  Their allegiance would then be to the victor.
