Renovations on the circa 1890 farm house at Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Park were completed in 2021. The interior has since been developed into a nature center for the Gainesville community.

The renovation cost was approximately $478,000. Partial funding for the nature center was provided by Alachua County Wild Spaces & Public Places tax dollars. Click here to view photos of the nature center’s renovation.
