Located in a small park at the intersection of highways 441 and 234, this sign welcomes visitors to the historic town of Micanopy*. Founded in 1821, Micanopy is believed to be the oldest inland town in Florida and is named for Chief Micanopy of the Seminole Nation.

The sign's arrow points south along Cholokka Blvd. and is located a few yards from the start of the Micanopy Historic District. Four blocks away at Cholokka Blvd. and Early Street is the Thrasher Warehouse, home of the Micanopy Historical Society Museum. The Thrasher Warehouse is one of thirty-nine sites in Micanopy which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
