Due to the spike in COVID-19 cases in Alachua County, the Historic Haile Homestead in Gainesville will be closed at least until the end of July.

The Historic Haile Homestead lies on Kanapaha Plantation where it was started in 1852 by Thomas Evans and Serena Chesnut Haile. The home is especially unique for it’s “talking walls.” “For a reason lost to time, the Haile family wrote on the walls of their home – over 12,500 words in almost every room and closet,” according to the homestead’s websites.

If you have yet to visit this Gainesville landmark, you will have to wait until it reopens after the end of July.

“The safety of our docents and visitors is our highest priority,” according to the website. “We will post any updates here and on our Facebook page.”
