Welcome to Homosassa

The Homosassa River has always been the lifeblood of Old Homosassa.

President Grover Cleveland established his “Winter Whitehouse” on the banks of this pristine river. Artists like Winslow Homer´s 1904 famous watercolors of the Homosassa River are always on display at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.

David Levy Yulee is credited with cultivating a variety of sweet oranges on his plantation on Tiger Island in the Homosassa River. This variety is appropriately named the Homosassa Orange and is still considered a favorite fruit today.


Homosassa is the center of Florida’s Nature Coast.

Nowhere in Florida is there a place so rich in history, archaeology and biodiversity of pristine rivers, state forests and greenways.
