Folklore and legend are always some of the more intersting and definitive aspects of a culture. The works in this section of the Florida Heritage Collection are very rich examples of Florida folklore. Elements of magic and the supernatural are woven into elaborate tales that exemplify elements of Florida culture. Florida folklore encompasses oral history as well as crafts handed down through generations of family members. The Florida Heritage Collection includes oral histories, folk tales, stories, and other materials that encompass folklore of the Sunshine State. One of the more significant works in this collection are the writings of Lafcadio Hearn, which contains a story about the Fountain of Youth.
