The Wakulla County Welcome Center in Panacea marks a turn of the century resort community. In the early 1900s, visitors traveled from across the country, and as far away as Europe, to “take in” the healing waters of the renowned Panacea Mineral Springs. Step inside the Welcome Center to see pictures of the mule powered tram car that carried travelers to this spot, and other classic photos from the past. The outside deck overlooks Dickerson Bay with a view of sky, pine forests, salt marsh and sea.
