Mysterious Structure on the bottom of Lake Seminole

The mysterious stone structure is now on the bottom of the Spring Creek arm of Lake Seminole.

Who built a mysterious stone structure that now rests on the bottom of Lake Seminole?

No one has seen the strange building in nearly 60 years, but speculation about it has focused on everyone from the ancient Mayans or Irish to General Andrew Jackson!

Two Egg TV has launched an expedition to find the structure. Rachael Conrad has Parts 1, 2 & 3 of our special series:

Jackson’s Oven stood near Rhodes’ Ferry Landing on Spring Creek prior to the completion of the Jim Woodruff Dam in 1958. We go beneath the waters of the lake in Part Two of this series as our search gets underway. We will post a link to that part as soon as it is available.

Here are some additional photos of the January 2017 flooding on the Chipola and Apalachicola Rivers as well as Lake Seminole:

Water almost completely surrounds the Great Platform Mound. More than 1,000 years old, this ancient platform mound once provided the base for a Native American home or structure.

A series of small prehistoric Indian mounds can be found along this low ridge at River Landing Park. Normally it is not even noticeable but in minor floods it remains above water level.
