Micanopy #2.  Downtown.   Paul Goldfinger. December,2017. Central Florida historic town. ©

This was a Seminole village when a New York developer bought thousands of acres in the vicinity for sugar crops in 1821 and established the first Florida town in the interior of the state.  In recent years it became a town where “hippies and artisans “lived and worked.  Now it is a lovely place that attracts visitors mostly for its architecture and antiquing.

One owner of a fine antique shop told us that the antique business is in decline. “Young people are not interested in collecting, and children don’t want their parents’ stuff.”

This town has a historical society, a few cafés, some admirable old homes, and a hotel.  But not many folks seemed to live in town.  If the tourists stop shopping, what will happen to this place? The owner didn’t seem to know.
