Zana was a small town along the Seaboard Air Line Railroad line on the Beeline Highway. It was named after a Roman Goddess, and appeared on maps in the 1930's (and still shows up on some maps today). Very little information exists about this place. Most of the former townsite is now the Brady Ranch, a private game hunting resort. Submitted by: Jim Pike
