Movement to save spring gaining momentum

Published August 12, 2011 Suwannee Democrat The Friends of Suwannee Springs have collected an immense amount of history relating to Suwannee Springs. Nix notes that in 1883, one of the largest hotels in the southern states at the time was erected at Suwannee Springs. It was sprawled out on over an acre of land and had 125 rooms. There was a central courtyard, fountains, and sub-tropical plants for vacationers to adore. Unfortunately, the structure burned after just one year, leaving many to reflect what might have been, had it remained. Source
