In 1914, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company completed the Perry Cut-off, also known as the West Coast Short Passenger Route, between Perry and Dunnellon. The 108-mile segment of rail line provided rail service to the Levy County Communities of Chiefland, Usher, Otter Creek, Gulf Hammock, Lebanon Station, Tidewater and Steen. The rail line opened southern Levy County to unobstructed lumbering activity.
