Edward Ball purchased Wakulla Springs in 1934 and developed it as an attraction that focused on the preservation of wildlife and the surrounding habitat. The Wakulla Springs Lodge, completed in 1937, is an excellent example of Mediterranean Revival architecture. Though some of the collections are on display at the park itself, mainly period furniture and decorative artifacts, at this time most are in storage at the Florida State Parks Collections Facility & Archives, in Tallahassee.
