Known as the oyster capital, In 1827, the town was incorporated as "West Point" and received its current name in 1831. A small town we visited on the way to our panhandle 'swing'. The main street had shoppes to browse and several eating establishments. Off the main street was the Orman house, possibly the oldest building of Greek Revival style on the Florida coast. A slave home resides nearby.
A nice afternoon ride to Dada City.
On display are tools of the Florida Pioneer Man, showing how he built his house, made his furniture, plowed his fields, harvested his crops, and did his leather-work and blacksmithing. Also, the Trilby Depot, the Lacoochee one-room schoolhouse, is a 100-year-old building. Methodist Church from Enterprise and the two-story 1864 restored Overstreet House. It was tough to get Ginger out of the car to do a tour, so we scampered about aound some of the buildings and then I wanted to donate and view (photograph) inside the n=museum and buildings. Good afternoon trip.
