About this Item

Title

  • White Springs School 5th Graders Dancing.

Summary

  • This photograph of children dancing is from the 1959 Florida Folk Festival. The festival first took place in 1953, on the grounds of the Stephen Foster Memorial along the banks of the Suwanee River in White Springs. The Suwannee formed the boundary between the Timucuans and the Apalachees, and the area was also considered special by the Seminole and Miccosukee peoples. The springs were considered by several indigenous American peoples to have healing powers. Settlers who began arriving in the area in the 1830s also advocated taking the waters, and tourism developed for travelers seeking cures for various ailments. The town also drew wealth from cotton and lumber. The Florida Folk Festival is one of the oldest and largest such festivals in the United States, and celebrates the arts and crafts of all Floridians.
