More Description

- Paynes Prairie's huge basin was formed when a number of sinkholes formed close to each other and eventually merged
- Located south of Gainesville, the Praire played on important role in much of the early settlement and development of north central Florida
- Generations of Indians lived, hunted, won and lost wars, and died on Paynes Prairie
- William Bartram wrote of the franquility and beauty of the area; some of that beauty has been destroyed in the name of progress
- Although the Prairie will never return to its unspolled state, there is reason to hope that Floridians can undo some of the damage their predecessors left now that the Prairie is a nature sanctuary
