Before there were roads and trains in Old Florida rivers were used for transporting goods and people.
slide14
The Ocklawaha River was used extensively for steamboat transportation in the 1800s and early 1900s. Narrow steamboats were used to navigate the constrictive and winding river. In the 1870s, the route between Palatka and Silver Springs became very popular, and was used by prominent figures such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ulysses S. Grant, Thomas A. Edison, and Mary Todd Lincoln to visit Silver Springs. The wild and scenic trip along the river probably added a sense of adventure to a visit to Silver Springs. The popularity of the river route to Silver Springs declined after the arrival of railroad service to Ocala in 1881
slide22
Roads in Old Florida only existed for a few miles outside of the city limits. Beyond that there were paths and trails.
