The old settlement of Island Grove is located near Cross Creek and in fact is the burial site of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings of "The Yearling" fame. I recommend the guided tour of Marjorie's home as you will hear a lot of interesting facts about the author and her life in this very out of the way place.
Anyone who has seen my web page, facebook page or other forums featuring my photos knows that I love Micanopy. It's a small town with only a few square blocks to wander about in but the finds are endless. I see something new every visit. There are similar towns nearby with names such as McIntosh, Rochelle, Shiloh and Island Grove. This is the real Florida for me, it's about as far from the ocean as you can get meaning the tourist haven't inundated it as yet.
