10 YEARS AGO
Nicholson Farmouse Restaurant had closed according to a voice message and a hand-lettered sign posted on the front gate of the restaurant. Owners Terry and Gerald Carpenter said it was necessary due to health problems and the unprofitability of the restaurant. They hoped a potential buyer would reopen it soon. The restaurant was originally started in 1988 by Paul and Ann Nicholson and was famous statewide. It was listed by Florida Trend as one of the 250 best restaurants in Florida.
