Weekie Wachee: City of Mermaids

Weeki Wachee: City of Mermaids

The fascinating history of Weeki Wachee Springs told through vintage photographs of the mermaids from their earliest days performing silent ballets to the heyday when ABC built them a million-dollar theater. When Newt Perry sank a theater into the edge of the spring in 1947, he had no idea his mermaids would become world-famous Florida icons.

This event is funded through a Florida Humanities Florida Talks Grant, in partnership with the Friends of the Wakulla Springs State Park.
