The town of Fanning Springs is located in the northwestern part of Levy County, but extends into Gilcrest County as well. There are two other towns in Florida that has this distinction of being located in more than one county. Fanning Springs has been known under several other names through its growth (Fannin Springs, Palmetto, Sikesville and Suwannee River), but in 1977 settled on its currant name, which came from the Fort that was established there in 1838 during the Seminole Wars and also due to a natural Spring.
