Video: Suwannee River rushes into White Sulphur Spring

Published March 17, 2012 Suwannee Democrat
In the 1800s, the sulphur spring was promoted as a cure for just about any ailment and visitors came to swim in the healing waters. After a log hotel was built beside the spring it became a popular health resort and one of Florida's first tourist destinations. In the late 1800s, 14 luxury hotels, as well as other boarding houses in the area, accommodated the visitors who arrived by special excursion train.
