If your in De Funiak Springs then by all means come take a look. The small museum is quaint. The homes on the drive are nice as is the library and other historic buildings.

The Circle Drive area in DeFuniak Springs was a very nice historic drive. There is lots of history in this area and really beautiful historic homes. The lake has a great cement walking trail around the lake and a really nice park area.

The drive around the lake to view the homes was gorgeous! Trees over hang the road and you can just feel the history in the air. The library is a must see! Can’t wait to see this circle during Christmas!

Beautiful walk around the small lake. Crisp white Church and houses set of by large trees. 100 car freight train passed thru while we were there, hooting all the way. Nostalgia of my childhood.

1 mile around a lake with ducks, kids playing, people biking, people fishing, and a wedding taking place. What a great place to unwind. It seems like something out of a book. The surrounding homes have such unique architecture, they are simply beautiful. Get off...More
