Florida Heritage Travel, May 2018 - Bristol
April 26, 2018
May 2018 News and Events
An old timer named Elvy Callaway got a lot of publicity a generation or two ago by claiming that the biblical Garden of Eden was in northern Liberty County near Bristol. Elvy was a country lawyer and a Baptist preacher.
He said the evidence was that the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee River system has four heads, just like the river described in the Bible. He also said the area is rich in gopher wood, the same stuff that Noah used to build his ark.
Apalachee Restaurant is located on State Road 20 on the west side of town in Bristol, Florida.
It features Southern style cooking both on their buffet and from the menu.

May is a favorite month in Florida for locals. It's mostly cool and air conditioners are only needed now and then. Many of the snowbirds have gone back North so lines are shorter at our local restaurants.
