Tate's Hell is a dense area of woods, swamp and bayou north of Carrabelle that has been known since 1875 as Tate's Hell. There are various twists to the legend, but the most widely accepted version of the story concerns 45 year old Cebe Tate, who lived in Sumatra and raised cattle. He set off into the swamp one day in search of a panther which was killing his cattle, with two of his hunting dogs. After a few hours searching for the panther Tate gets separated from his dogs and became lost and disoriented. Realizing he is lost, he take a rest at the base of a big tree and there he is snake bitten. Tate wandered the swamps for days snake bitten and ate up by mosquitoes. When he finally emerged somewhere near Carrabelle, some 25 miles from Sumatra. Upon walking up to two men, Tate is reported to have said, "my name is Tate, and I've just been in Hell." and after he spoke those words he falls and died at the men's feet.
