Florida discoveries: Caverns and mastodon bones at Wakulla Springs

Published 4/25/2015
People have been taking boat rides to see the springs since the first half of the 19th century. The mastodon bones were spotted in the 1850s. In 1934, Edward Ball, a financier, purchased the property as a wildlife sanctuary and built the Wakulla Springs Lodge. The state bought the land in 1986 and established Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a National Natural Landmark.
