San Felasco Hammock State Preserve

San Felasco Hammock is named for an old Spanish Mission, San Francisco de Potano which ministered to the Indians living here centuries ago. Over time the early settlers continually mispronounced San Francisco until the area became known as San Felasco. "Hammock" is an Indian word that means "shady." The lower two thirds of San Felasco has been set aside for hiking only. The northern most 2,000 acres have been designated for multi-use purposes including horseback riding, off-road bicycling and hiking. Trails in this section were built by The Friends of San Felasco, Inc. and other interested volunteers.




Gainesville Raceway

This year marks the 35th Annual MAC tools Gatornationals. Gainesville Raceway has been host to many national events for over 30 years including the Mac Tools Gatornationals.

Home to hundreds of Sportsman drivers, the raceway has provided a service to racers, fans and the community that has carried them into the new century.

The Thomas Center

At The mission of the Department of Cultural Affairs is to promote cultural activity in Alachua County and develop mechanisms that support and encourage community-based cultural resources. We define "cultural" to include ethnic, ecological, and historic resources, as well as the fine and popular arts. History
The City of Gainesville established an Office of Cultural Affairs in 1979. Present staff consists of 13 full time and several part time positions. Seven to eight interns and several part time clerical volunteers provide us with approximately 5,000 hours per year of unpaid assistance, in addition to the 250-300 hours of time donated by program volunteers. Funds are generated by facility rentals for social and community events, festivals, programs, grants, or are derived from the City. Unlike most of Florida's local arts agencies, the Department of Cultural Affairs is not a membership organization. We do not collect dues or solicit major benefactors in order to avoid competing with the agencies we support.

Also to provide the community of Archer with an organization for young and old alike, with a common goal, thereby promoting unity, friendship and understanding among the citizens of our town. Currently, the Archer Historical Society meets the THIRD THURSDAY of every month at the depot museum in Archer at 7 PM.
