Sopchoppy Historical Events

The Legend of the White Squirrels"

Years ago I saw a book about the history of Sopchoppy. This books described the legend of a Chinese Princess being on a ship that traveled up the Ochlockonee River to the old railroad trestle to unload. She was carrying her pair of pet white squirrels. As the legend goes (if I remember correctly), the squirrels got out of their cage and survived. According to legend, this is how the Franklin County side of the river from Highway 319 to St. Theresa has white squirrels-today. They are not albinos. They breed with gray squirrels but the white is dominant. County Road 370 a/k/a Cow Creek Road, Boat Ramp Road, White Squirrel Road, and currently Rio Vista Drive parallels the river where the squirrels are located.
