Suwannee River

History

In the 16th century the river was inhabited by two closely related Timucua language-speaking peoples: the Yustaga, who lived on the west side of the river, and the Northern Utina, who lived on the east side.

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 19th century.
