An Ancient find in Marion County
While crews worked at the Silver Springs/ River Pollution Reduction Project, they found artifacts that describe Florida's rich Native American history and highlight the spirit of Marion County Pioneers.
They came across piles of bricks that once used to be a part of Ocala Northern Railroad. Back in 1908, it offered passengers the Silver Springs Special. This was also the site of a large lumber mill.
Archeologists also recognized that this property, located off S.R. 40 and S.E. 60th Court, used to be inhabited by Archaic Indians, dating back four to five thousand years. Several of their tools were scattered throughout. The remains of their descendants were also found.
