Chassahowitzka WMA History and Wildlife
A piece of this area, which was once a huge cypress forest was purchased by a logging company that crosscut the whole thing. There was a sawmill and town that built up around it. An historic marker is along US19 commemorating Centralia and those who lived and worked here during its heyday.
Today, if one stops in the hydric forest, cypress stumps of twenty feet in girth can be seen rotting back into the ecosystem as echoes of what was once there. A single ancient Cypress tree was left, probably because it was hollow. Its age is estimated in the 500 years range and it is very alive.
A small, isolated population of twenty to thirty Florida black bears survive in this area. The State is working diligently toward connecting these animals with other populations to keep them healthy and vibrant. The Florida Wildlife Corridor is doing their best to assist.
Award Winning Liquors
Besides being able to sample and purchase our award-winning liquors, we also sell various local-made products, plus t-shirts, liquor glasses, and more in their Store. When the weather cools a bit in the fall, they hold concerts on the outdoor stage with seating. Ticket prices are around $20 and quickly sell out.
The visit can be as little as an hour or as long as you like. Our bartender is Robin, who serves excellent drinks and snacks, and is the NJOY SPIRITS DISTILLERY photographer.
