It is a fascinating early 19th century neighborhood with narrow streets.
It’s a national historic district and is very well preserved.
Houses are well maintained with low traffic streets and gas lit street lighting.
This town seems as it would feel like a real community, unlike much of our newer towns.

A common misperception is that the current American state of auto-dependency is a result of the free market doing its work. In fact, a variety of government interventions ensure that the transportation market is skewed towards car-ownership. These policy biases are too numerous to list exhaustively, but a few merit special recognition: …
I’m going to try to do a tiny house furniture post at least once per week. This will be a good way to show everyone what’s already out there as far as tiny house furniture goes.
Today I’ll be featuring a dual purpose chair which transforms into a ladder/step stool. Great for a library but can also be useful in a tiny house, especially since we deal with lofts and loft storage a lot.
These might not be tall enough to get you up into your bedroom loft, although it may?? But it’ll at least give you access to some of those hard to reach storage spots.
America’s smallest post office. I pass by this every time I go on US 41 from Naples, Florida to Miami, Florida to visit my parents.
One day I stopped and took some pictures. Unfortunately it wasn’t open that day because it was a weekend but I still got some nice photos.
Considered to be the smallest post office in the United States, this building was formerly an irrigation pipe shed belonging to the J.T. Gaunt Company tomato farm. It was hurriedly pressed into service by postmaster Sidney Brown after a disastrous night fire in 1953 burned Ochopee’s general store and post office. The present structure has been in continuous use ever since-as both a post office and ticket station for Trailways bus lines-and still services residents in a three-county area, including deliveries to Seminole and Miccosukee Indians living in the region. Daily business often includes requests from tourists and stamp collectors the world over for the famed Ochopee post mark. The property was acquired by the Wooten Family in 1992.
That’s the water tank right underneath. Any tips for them?
Right above the water tank they installed two slide out drawers with plastic containers, very smart. If it were mine I’d try to figure out a way to hide the tank a bit. Probably with a wrap around curtain that can be installed underneath the counter top. I’m sure it’s possible just have to pick a nice fabric.
Okay next (below that) I found a kitchen I LOVE… So I had to show you guys. I ran into it while looking for counter top curtains haha…
