Racepond

RACEPOND,, is a station on the Atlantic Coast Line R.R. It is said that the settlement received its name from the race track built around a cypress pond. During the Seminole War, soldiers were sent here to capture the Indians who had hidden in the great swamps of the Okefenokee. Having much leisure, the soldiers built the race track to enable them to race horses for their own amusement.
