If you like old historic sites with local significance this is a quick visit that may be of some interest to you. Not much there other than the ruins of the old mill and few signs provide the only information about the site. Alteratively, its located in a nice park that would allow for a great picnic under the big... More

We had visited the Whitney plantation in New Orleans the week before. We had seen the large metal bowls that were used to make the sugar. They were all that remained of the sugar producing operation at Whitney. They were not put in to context with the building so it was very interesting for us to see not only the... More

It's full of history and what looks like hard times for the people who had to work the sugar mill. Not a lot to see, but worth a stop if you are in the area.

This is the remnants of a 5,000 acre sugarcane plantation that was the main supplier of the confederate forces during the Civil War. Also distilled rum, which is fine by me! At the park, the stonework (foundation, well and 40-foot chimney) of the mill, iron gears, a cane press, and some of the other machinery remain. There is also a... More

We had driven by several times and finally decided to take a picnic lunch to the park across the road that has picnic tables and parking. The plaques around the remains of the sugar mill are quite informative, both of the process and the history of the area.

Small park but if your into old Florida history it is worth seeing. There are restrooms across the street at the park. There is also a natural spring on the way down the road worth stopping at, you can't swim there, but there are turtles and fish and a dog park.

This is a part of the local history that unless I had seen would never have know that they made sugar here. There is not much to it but is significant to the area and its development/history. It is nice to learn things about other places in the United States. Also lets you know that Florida is not just Mickey... More

My wife and I passed this while in town and decided to check it out. It is interesting to see the technology they employed to process the sugar cane into sugar. It is not manned and could be potentially hazardous for small children if left unattended. It's probably not worth going out of the way for, but worth seeing if... More

10 minutes of your time maximum. Worth the drive to kill a little time. Unfortunately it is not manned, and is directly on the side of the road.
