INDIAN HEAD? Ask Us...We Live There!
Indian Head Acres is a lovely downtown Tallahassee neighborhood, convenient to the Capital, Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Governor's Square Mall. It's an easy walking distance to many restaurants and shops. And with Cascades Park getting close to completion and the improved Gaines Street Arts area, downtown living may be the place to be!
Most homes were built in the 1950s with hardwood floors and large, beautiful back yards. A building spurt in the 1980s produced more contemporary style homes. Prices range from under $100,000 to $250,000 range and sizes run from 2 bedroom/1 bath to 6 bedrooms/4 baths, with most being 3 beds/2 baths.
Two parks -- Optimist and Koucky -- back up to a flowing creek that runs through the neighborhood. A walking trail borders the creek. Wildlife includes owls, foxes, hawks and turtles. Many of the streets have Cherokee Indian names and most end with the word Nene, which means "Trail" or "Path".
A monthly potluck supper at Optimist Park and an annual Halloween Party complete with costume contests and live music are available for all to enjoy. In recent years the Annual "Nene Fest" has been added in the Spring. A daytime fun event with live music, food, and fun for all ages. Annual Homeowners association fees are an optional $10 per year. The fee covers maintenance of the trails, a newsletter, pot luck supper utensils, and the Halloween party.
