Roadside America- Weeki Wachee Returns Clam Shelll Roof

Weeki Wachee Returns to 'Clam Sell' Roof.

 Time for some news of a classic nostalgia. The Mermaid Theater of Weeki Wachee Springs in Central Florida is undergoing a massive renovation this summer.

 While doing work for a new roof, they discovered the old 'Clam Shell' roof as still intact under the wooden shingles. The state parks division has decided to re-furbish the old roof, rather then just replace the singles, to give the theater it's original look- That of a giant white clam.  This not only is more fitting for the theater but brings back the classic nostalgia of the Florida Roadside Attraction.

 We're always glad to see Weeki Wachee getting publicity, more so when it's for the better of a classic attraction! You Go, Mermaids! We'll be down to check this out possibly later this fall!
