Umatilla Chamber of Commerce

What do sea turtles, scrub jays, and radio signals from Jupiter have in common?

A man and his brother... their family... an ethic...and a tiny cabin in the Ocala National Forest on the edge of Florida's Big Scrub.

The Archie Carr Cabin Restoration Team   Dr. Archibald Carr Sr. and wife Louise in front of their home ca 1938

A "Friends of the Carr Cabin" has been established to spearhead the restoration efforts, with the cooperation of the U.S.F.S. Additionally, an interpretive nature trail is being planned that will allow visitors to walk the surrounding flatwoods and scrub. Signage and trail head kiosks will help explain the landscape, as well as the influence the experience had on the family.
