Morriston is a quaint little town off U.S. Highway 41 west of Ocala. Another of Florida’s best kept secrets, most of Morriston is located on scenic vistas of peaceful Florida Prairie, or in the serene confines of oak forest. The population is less than five-hundred people and it is perfect place for those who have grown weary of the twenty-first century buzz and clamor. White sandy roads run right into the heart of the woods and are as likely to have hoof prints on them as tire tracks. There is abundant wildlife and provides ample opportunity for both hunting and fishing.
In Morriston, the only time the silence is disturbed is when a freight train passes on the edge of town. There are horse farms and charming homes that are sparsely spread throughout the countryside. It is one of the last cities in Florida where you can experience nature the way that homesteading pioneers did over one-hundred and fifty years ago. Just a short car ride gets you to Gainesville or the Gulf of Mexico.
The numerous equestrian parks and farms in the area mean that horseback riding is available year-round. Morriston is sure to see a growth boom in the near future considering its proximity to major roadways and two mid-sized Florida cities. For those considering retirement or just getting away from it all, Morriston offers a place to enjoy peace and quiet with the conveniences of larger communities within a short drive.
