When the Howell Avenue Historical Sidewalks were slated for removal, Historic Hernando Preservation Society executed a plan. Don Moses, current president of the organization, wrote a proposal to the City of Brooksville to save a portion of the historic sidewalk. He began by choosing a section that might be of some significance. Simply walking the sidewalk led to a portion at the corner of Howell and Olive streets that bore the date of January 6, 1914. When Don submitted the proposal to Mr. Bill Geiger, Community Development Director of Brooksville, it was accepted.
