St. Marys, Lake City & Gulf Railroad
In 1893-96, the Brooks Brothers lumber and turpentine company built a railroad along the eastern edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, naming it the St. Marys, Lake City and Gulf Railroad. The northern terminus of the SMLC&G was at Boulogne, Florida, on the Jacksonville branch of the Savannah, Florida, and Western. From there the railroad ran west across the St. Marys to Traders Hill and then south to Toledo and Charlton.
The line was abandoned around 1900.
