Zephyrhills as described in 1939 [1]

Zephyrhills, formerly known as Abbot's Station, has a broad main street lined with oaks. The town site was selected by Captain H. B. Jeffries, a Union army officer, as a home for Grand Army of the Republic veterans. A number of soldiers established residences here in 1915, at which time the name of the town was changed. A crate mill and naval-stores plant are in operation here.
