Is situated in Central Florida, eighteen miles west of Palatka, on high
ground, between two spring lakes of clear, bliie water, abounding
in fish. It has been selected as a Winter Resort, somewhat after
the plan of the celebrated Northern Michigan Resorts, where each
shareholder may own his own cottage, and keep house or board at
the Company's Club House, which will be erected as soon as enough
stock is subscribed for that purpose. Sufficient stock has been sub-
scribed to purchase the site-nearly one hundred acres-which is
free from incumbrance, and will be leased to shareholders only, who
must be approved by the Board of Directors, and who must con-
form to the By-Laws of the Company. The object is a winter home,
free from dissipations, where social life can be enjoyed, in the best
climate in the world, at a minimum cost, and the Company invite
all who sympathize with its objects, to become members of'the
Association, purchase a lot and erect a neat cottage where they will
feel that they always have a retreat from the chilling winter blasts of
the North. A share, lot, and cottage will cost not so much as a few
weeks board at a first-class hotel in any of the Florida towns, and
while there is less style and fewer Inxuries, there is more health, and
consequently more enjoyment, and you have the satisfaction of hav-
ing obtained the worth of your money.
To reach Interlachen, take any of the usual routes to Jackson-
ville, the St. Johns River Steamers to Palatka, and from thence by
the Florida Southern Railroad to Interlachen, 18 miles west.
.For further information as to routes, cost of transportation,
price of lots, cost of cottages, &c., &c., address
