Micanopy Historic District
Roughly Cholokka Blvd. from US 441 to Ocala St. then Smith St. W to Okehumkee St.
The Micanopy Historic District encompasses several important archaeological sites, possibly including the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century Seminole Indian town of Cuscowilla, an early nineteenth century trading post and a Second Seminole War period fort. It contains a concentration of well-preserved buildings from a thirty-year period before and after the turn of the century. The District and much of the surrounding town still retain much of their turn of the century atmosphere and charm. Green spaces, ancient oaks and other native trees listed by William Bartram in 1774 provide a timeless background.
Micanopy Historic District is a National Register of Historic Places.
