Annutteliga Hammock was a staging area for the United States Regular troops during the Seminole Wars.

The Annutteliga Hammock is an important area for groundwater recharge into Florida’s primary drinking water source, the Floridan aquifer system. Situated in the Brooksville Ridge, which runs from northern Citrus County down into central Pasco County, the lands are slightly higher in elevation than the adjacent coastal or central portions of the state. The area within the Brooksville Ridge typically has well-drained soils, karst limerock outcroppings and is dominated by sandhills, upland hardwood forests and scrub communities. Property links with the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area, which is a prime Florida black bear habitat area. Approximately 570 acres have been designated for trails and facilities for public use.
