A quick stop...

This is worth a quick stop to see some of Florida's history. Ruins are ruined and not too much to see so you don't have to plan on a long visit.

If on a schedule, skip this site. It contains some machinery and concrete structures of an old sugar mill. There are some interpretive signs. You can see the site in five minutes so it is really not worth the effort unless this is your interest area.

The Yulee Sugar Mill ruins that we visited are not in Crystal River - they are on Yulee Drive - smack dab in the middle of the road into OLD HOMOSASSA! It is a beautiful, old Florida road with the ruins on one side of the street and a park, pavilion and restrooms on the other. What a wonderfully informative... More

This is a modest collection of ruins just off the road. The signs are very helpful for interpreting the history of the ruins.

This is a nice history lesson planted on the side of the road. Pull over and learn about the sugar industry in Florida. This goes back a long time and you can see how this area has changed. Keep following the road and you will run into monkey Island. Stay out of the restaurant there you can do better. Go... More

Stopped, there is the sugar mill ruins, rest room, pavilions, along the creek. Small place. 15 minutes to review all that is there

We learned a lot by visiting this small, roadside historical site. It's easily walked though in 20-30 minutes if you stop to read each sign and spend time really looking at what remains of the mill. We were disappointed to find that many of the historical signs have either been stolen or otherwise removed. We felt like there was a... More

No guides here nor does it take very long to see. A few info stations about the sugar business in Florida. But, I learned something new, ergo, it was worth it. Anytime you learn something new only enhances your future. Imagine what your kids would be like if they learned new things every day?

This is worth a stop if passing as it's a an interesting aspect of years gone by. Unfortunately some of the information panels are missing and I think more could be done to explain the general history of sugar plantations in the 1800s. However, there's a covered picnic area directly across the road with a surprisingly clean toilet block behind.
