DESCRIPTION: Remnants of logging operation and a cemetery.

HISTORIC FACTS: Native Americans long lived in the Land of the Trembling Earth. During the Seminole Wars in the early nineteenth century, Billy Bowlegs was the leader of a party of Indians, escaped slaves, and AWOL soldiers who used Billys Island as a base. By 1838, the U.S. Army had taken over the island. In the 1850s the Lee family moved to the island, farming, fishing, hunting, and foraging. The Georgia land sale of the entire swamp in 1889 to the Suwannee Canal Company did not disturb the Lees. Once that failed, the Hebard family bought he Swamp in 1901 and started logging all the cypress in the swamp and pine trees on the islands they could get. The island briefly boombed with movies, a church, and whisky stills. The Lees sued, lost, and left. The loggers left in 1926 and the Lees returned. The U.S. purchased the Swamp in 1937. Persuaded by scientific research since 1912 and especially naturalist Francis Lee, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge by executive order in 1937.

ACCESS: Yes, Launch: concrete ramp on paved road below the sill; riverbank on the dam above. PARKING: $5 parking pass

WATER BODY: Suwannee River

GAUGE: SCFSP

MILE: 240.12

ADDRESS: From Fargo, travel south on US 441 to GA 177; turn left and travel towards Stephen C. Foster State Park. Go 11.2 miles and turn left on Suwannee River Sill. Ware, Charlton Counties.

DESCRIPTION: A dam on the Suwannee River below the Okefenokee Swamp, with its gates always open. It was intended to keep the water level in the Swamp up, but it failed to do so, and that turned out to be a bad idea for the ecology. For example, cypress trees can only grow from seed when the water is down.

HISTORIC FACTS: Built by the federal government in 1960, this five-mile-long dirt dam was intended to keep water in the Swamp during droughts, because of wildfires in the 1950s. It didn’t work: it only affected about one percent of the Swamp. In 1998 U.S. FWS concluded that the Sill should be breached and its gates removed. Meanwhile, the structure is popular as an access road to the Suwannee River and the Okefenokee Swamp, and there is resistance to it being completely removed. Meanwhile, its gates (flow outlets) are always open.

HISTORIC FACTS: Andrew Godwin (165-1942) “”Andrew was a farmer, a contractor who specialized in bridges, and politically active in support of his cousin, Fred P. Cone 1871–1948 (governor of Florida 1937–1941 and known for establishing the Florida State Highway Patrol). The home place was between two of Andrew’s bridges, Cone Bridge and Godwin Bridge, both spanning the Suwannee River in Hamilton County. Neither is still standing, though his pilings are still visible, and they are both popular sites to launch boats in Big Shoals State Park.”” https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/11040023/andrew-godwin

DESCRIPTION: A sand beach and stairs next to a sulfur spring with a stone spring wall.

HISTORIC FACTS: “”Suwannee Springs was one of Florida’s original tourist destinations. The spring pool was enclosed in the late 1800s to create a bathing area for a resort hotel, which used to be located nearby. People came from all around the east coast to partake of the “healing sulfur waters” which were rumored to cure everything from gout to marital problems. From the civil war to the 1920s the site had a succession of four wooden hotels, a bathhouse, and many private cottages. A special spur railroad line was established just to take the tourists to the springs. The last hotel burned in 1925 and with the decline of the railroads the resort faded away. Today the springhouse and some private cabins on adjacent property are all that is left of the site.”” https://visitsuwannee.com/live-oak/suwannee-springs
