Happy Birthday Wakulla County March 11, 1843

WakullaCoLogo.largeWakulla County was created from Leon County in 1843. It may (although this is disputed) be named for the Timucuan Indian word for “spring of water” or “mysterious water.” This is in reference to Wakulla County’s greatest natural attraction, Wakulla Springs, which is one of the world’s largest freshwater springs, both in terms of depth and water flow. In 1974, the water flow was measured at 1.23 billion US gallons (4,700,000 m3) per day—the greatest recorded flow ever for a single spring. Source Wikipedia Wakulla County, Florida

Great Evening at “A Man Remembered”

Wow! We had a fantastic turn out for our program with Rick Smith. He shared with us personal interviews with Patrick Smith so we could see the man he was. It was an amazing experience. We have his book A Land Remembered on sale at the museum. The museum will be opened tomorrow from 10 am to 2 pm.
