"Way down upon the Suwannee River" Live Oak by xdescendx
Live Oak Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 11 photos
Here in the river, there are still many native American artifacts that are just below the surface and take patience to find. These were recently found by 'dusting' the river bed.
A wild blackwater river, about 266 miles long.
At the time of the Spanish exploration of the area in the 1530s, the river banks were inhabited by the Timucuan people, who named it Suwani, meaning "Echo River". In the 18th century, Seminoles lived by the river. The steamboat Madison operated on the river before the Civil War, and the sulphur springs at White Springs became popular as a health resort, with 14 hotels in operation in the late 1800s.
