So nice to see a trace of what used to be. A quiet little town off the beaten track. Only a couple of blocks from US441, well worth the stop. Lots of antique shops, an ice cream parlor, the old Thrasher museum, some really neat old homes. Had a visit with the gentleman at the Historical society, oh boy, does he know is history. The cemetery has a lot of history also. So nice to see the old times, get away from the present.

Going through Micanopy was a great alternative to taking the interstate, and it was just a happy coincidence that one of my favorite films (Doc Hollywood) was filmed there.

Stop here first on your visit to Micanopy. Interesting little town old Florida style. I don't think they have a bathroom though.

This local museum is truly a little gem. It is worth taking a few moments to walk through the delightful collection of objects and information to get a better feel for local history and the persons involved with making Micanopy the charming little town it is today. The docent is particularly helpful and very willing to phone in questions to local history experts if she doesn't have the answer herself. I'd recommend visiting the museum 1st to get better acquainted with the area. We didn't do this, but I wish we had. I really can say I was impressed with this little museum!
