Discover one of the most serene places you’ll find in all your travels. Wakulla Springs Lodge was developed in 1937 by Edward Ball, an entrepreneur, financier, and railroad magnate. He designed and created this 27 room lodge, a most unique retreat, using hand-wrought iron, marble and hand-made ceramic imported tile. Standing today as it did then, changed only for improvements in safety and comfort, the lodge is a glimpse into Florida of the 1930’s.
The lodge’s unique features, combined with the surrounding natural and cultural resources, contribute to the site’s designation as a National Natural Landmark and its listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
