Newgate Street in south Brooksville will be renamed Sarah F. Davis Drive


Street renaming will honor the late Sarah F. Davis

The Hernando County administrator's office has announced that Newgate Street, on the south side of Brooksville, will be renamed Sarah F. Davis Drive. A dedication ceremony has been scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at the street's intersection with St. Francis Street. Davis, who was killed in 2010, was a lifelong resident of Brooksville. She was a teacher for 30 years and, after retirement, began a second career with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office. The road to be named in her memory connects St. Francis and School streets, with plans to extend it to connect with Emerson Road as part of the infrastructure improvement project under way in south Brooksville.
