Question/Topic: Garden of Eden - Florida 
Answer/Pointer: Belief that the Garden of Eden was in the Florida Panhandle. "The Apalachicola Bluffs & Ravines Preserve, a 6,400-acre expanse of wilderness west of Tallahasse, is what some people believe is the original Garden of Eden" "The closest camping facilities to the garden are at Torreya State Park, to the north, But the preserve does have a self-guided hiking trail open to the public. To reach it, follow Garden of Eden Road, 2 miles north of Bristol on Florida Route 12." (article by Kate Santich in Florida Magazine 5/25/97, reprinted from Southern Living) See also Ron Hartung's column, Tallahassee Democrat 4/5/00, "A field trip to the Garden of E.E. Eden." Both articles attached to card in Problem Box under Garden of Eden - Fla.
