We were at a loss a couple times to explore historic, abandoned or points of interest in Steinhatchee. The two primary 'points of interest' were the docks and morning fishing boats prepping and leab=ving docks and the serene Steinhatchee Falls. We travelled a 2+ mile dirt road to the falls and found a beautiful quiet stream and falls (and we assumed a newly engaged couple having photos taken).
Also shown below are a set of one room cabins identified on FB Old Florida site ... not knowing their historical purpose.
"Steinhatchee is a fishing village on the Gulf Coast in North Central Florida. Traveling to Biloxi we always pass 'signs' for Steinhatchee, but always say "next time' The village is known for scalloping and fishing as you see lots of trucks and boats preparing for a day out on the Gulf.
Many artists spend time in Steinhatchee to capture images of the Old Florida town and the surrounding wildlife. The town has many Victorian homes along the river, and it is a good walking and biking town.
Up the river from the village is Steinhatchee Falls. The falls can be visited, and is the spot where General Andrew Jackson reportedly crossed with his army in pursuit of Seminoles in the early history of Florida. It's a good spot for picnics and swimming". Source: Backroads Travel
We see several signs for Steinhatchee as we travel Rt 19/98, but only when we selected 'fishing villages' as another photo graphic destinations theme did we visit the town. Most notably, as we entered the town, locals and visitors abound with activity pulling their boats, getting fishing gear and preparing for day on the water. It is very much a fishing village. We did not see much activity for commercial fishing, however, I must be fair and say we did not know our way around the area.
