Ellaville

A boom town in the 1800's declining in early 1900's, now a ghost town.

Ellaville, located in Suwannee County near the Suwannee River State Park on US 90 has had a varied past.  It was a boom town in the 1800's and had attracted around 1000 people.  Being located at the convergence of two rivers, the Suwannee and Withlacoochee, it was a natural spot for logging interests.  George Drew and Louis Bucki took advantage of the area and produced turpentine, ran a sawmill and also built railroad cars for a time.
