Homosassa has a rich and colorful history. Native American's inhabited the area thousands of years ago.

More recently the Yulee family ran a sugar cane and molasses plantation that supplied the confederate troops during the Civil War.

Ruins of the machinery and stone fireplace are still standing as you enter old Homosassa.

The Homosassa River, which flows from the mouth of the Homosassa Springs, serves as a navigation way and recreation area for many residents and visitors. People come from all over the globe to Homosassa to “swim with the manatees”.

Several area dive, snorkel and boat rental shops dot the area offering a once in a lifetime chance to mingle with a manatee. These docile mammals inhabit the relatively warm waters that pump out of the area springs.

Homosassa is all about the water, from the river to the canals to the Gulf of Mexico, there is plenty of waterfront property and waterfront homes for sale. Wayne can tour you through the various waterfront communities.
