If you find that you have some time while walking around Micanopy, it's very much worth a stop at the Micanopy historical society museum. The staff was very helpful and the informal tour was great!

Great docent made for a wonderful visit. The museum is small but jam-packed with interesting Florida memorabilia. The Native American portraits are of special interest, though the old still was stiff competition!

This small, volunteer run museum is well done with an interesting array of period pieces and historical information on this most historic town dating back long before most Florida towns. A small book store is also available.
