Two Egg needs a historical marker

This has been on my mind for some time. Two Egg needs a historical marker. Can you think of a better place for one?

I have been asked so many times how the community got its name, and so has anyone else with any association with Two Egg, that a marker telling the story of the town would probably be one of the most read plaques in Jackson County (if not in all of Florida).

I worry that the heart of the little community is going to entirely disappear if something isn't done soon to preserve it. Both of the stores have been closed for a couple of years now and the condition of one is really starting to diminish. It would be a horrible shame to lose a community that has been such a point of curiosity for generations of visitors to Florida.

Perhaps the erection of a suitable marker in the "downtown" district would be a good start towards launching a preservation effort in Two Egg.
