Stephen Foster introduced Americans to the Suwannee River through his famous song. The state of Florida adopted Old Folks at Home as its official state song in 1935.
Foster not only stumbled over the spelling of Suwannee, but also wrote his song about a river he had never seen. However, this popular tune heard around the United States spurred on a major tourist movement into Florida and especially around the Suwannee River.
