Epperson Park in Williston, Florida
Driving along US Highway 27 in Williston, Florida, I noticed this large metal object in a field and had to turnaround and figure out what it was. When I parked and was able to check out the park, the metal object turned out to be an old generator, and under some beautiful oak trees was a Howitzer 8in M2 cannon. Check out the 360-degree panoramic images of Epperson Park below.
Equipment used to capture the 360-degree panoramic images:

This generator was used for seven years to produce electricity and had a capacity of 100 kilowatts.
