Troy Springs State Park is a Florida State Park, located approximately six miles north of Branford, off US 27. It contains one of the state's 33 first magnitude springs.

At the bottom of the Troy Spring is the sunken Confederate Steamship Madison, which had been captained by captain James Felix Tucker. The ship was scuttled to prevent it from falling into union hands.[1][2]
