Default underwater city in the gulf?

Someone told me there is a sunken city in the gulf somewhere.... anyone know if this is true? Or just an old wives tale?

inquiring minds want to know

You haven't been to the sunken city before. Heck, Atlantis has some of the hottest mermaids around.

why not? 12,000 years ago during the last ice age the shoreline was 25 miles south. One of my favorite fishing spots is the timber holes...a petrified forest

Lots of stories, not much real proof.
Just enough to keep them looking.

I would have to think that with all the oil exploration in the gulf it would have been found at this point

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say no.

If I had to guess it is probably related to the blocky structures that you see along the edge. They are the result of natural jointing and slumping of the rock outcrop along the edge of the shelf but could easily be mistaken for man-made structures. I've seen some videos on here of people diving along the edge that show these structures pretty well.

what sam said...the only likely "cities" that could be underwater in the gulf would be ancient native villages that occupied areas along the coast plains of the ice age, and they would be next to impossible to find today...otherwise, not likely...unless you are talking about Port Royal in Jamaica, but that's the Caribbean as ya probably know!

Anything left from aboriginal villages would long be covered with a lot of sand out in the gulf. They found the Deptford Indian artifacts along Hawkshaw near the bay. Most of it was pottery shards and animal bones. You can see some of it on display at the Gulf Power building. Since they moved around a lot their housing could not have been substantial enough to withstand storms. I doubt that there was anything here like the Anasazi's out west.
