Update November 5th, 2022
Using a visit to McIntosh to enjoy the 1890s festival, we wanted to further visit parts of Gainesville we may have missed (below). My search identified additional sites to photograph but only limited opportunity to visit historical or unique photo ops. We visited the Evergreen cemetery a quite historic cemetery, checked out 'downtown' center with a handful of murals and passed by a recommended B&B.

We decided to check out Gainesville since Florida University was one of 3 colleges our grandson was considering as his college of choice. My initial research for photo opportunities did not identify the town as a 'must see' (but opportunities exist to revisit after identifying historical or unique attractions). We did however, check out U of F by car and visited the chapel (below).
Observations: University of Florida is an absolutely beautiful campus. Traveling by car however is 'impossible'. Anyone attending the University would have to walk or bike to travel to classes with the campus. To highlight car transportation: we found that traveling 1 mile through the campus could take you 15- 20 minutes! So after seeing several 'branches' of education - agriculture, meteorology, etc. we decided to see the U of F chapel ... check out the beautiful structure.
