this is a well preserved ruins with a small out-door museum of various items found around the grounds. Burned during the Indian War. Parking is near by and easy access.

This places a cool spot to discover. All the history on this land makes it a must see. The kids liked exploring along the trails. Nice screened picnic area and bathrooms.

The Oak tree at the entrance is just simply awesome. Just knowing the age of the tree made me feel such gratitude to Mother Nature. The trail and the walk was interesting on its own. Beautiful experience.

The plantation is in the thick canopy of the Florida inland and was beautiful and different from the coast. Very lush and relaxing and a reminder about how we mistreated the people we brought here and the people who lived here.

This is at the north end of the Ormond Beach Scenic Loop. You enter and drive about a mile down a dirt/packed sand road built in the 1800's. You'll find rest rooms, natural Florida plants and the ruins of an old sugar factory, the largest...More
