The Micanopy Historical Society Library and Archives endeavors to gather, preserve and organize for accessibility documents that interpret the history of Micanopy and surrounding environs.
The archival collections comprise materials relating to the Micanopy area from earliest times to the present. Included are Micanopy societies, enterprises, churches, government, products, families and events. Works of Micanopy authors, deed abstracts, maps, lists of burials, indexed newspaper clippings, genealogical charts, minutes of organizations and photographic images are all available to researchers.
Descriptive information about the archival collections held by the Micanopy Historical Society Library and Archives is available in the Guide to Collections. Please note that a small percentage of our collection descriptions currently are not available online.
The fragmentary nature, fragility and uniqueness of much of the material means that it does not circulate and must be used in the archives. Procedures for obtaining photocopies of documents or copies of photographs are swift, of high quality and include mail service, all at reasonable cost.
Researchers must register using the appropriate form before using research materials. Patrons are welcome to the archives and staff will make every effort to help them find the information they seek.
Donations to the archives of documents or photographic images relating to the history of Micanopy are welcome.
