There's not a lot left of this once-thriving sugar plantation and mill, but with a little imagination and the help of interpretive signs around the remaining structures, it's easy to visualize. David Levy Yulee, who built and ran this mill, was Florida's first senator (the first Jewish senator in U.S. history) and an entrepreneur who also built railroads. The steam-driven... More

This is a remarkable spot to visit. This is not a replica but the original remnants of an old Florida sugar mill with some signage provided for information. There are no guides or gift shops. It is right around the corner from the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.

half of the interpretive placards were missing, but it was actually interesting anyway. Start at the north end, nearer route 19, otherwise it make less sense.

The mills ruins and the explanatory signs give you glimpse into the sugar cane industry that now doesn't seem to exist in Florida. The shaded setting with picnic benches and plenty of parking are relaxing and informative. A stop doesn't have to be long though a cafe/bar is near enough to walk to.

We were at the Homasassa Wildlife Park and walked over to the Sugar Mill Ruins while we waited for the tram ride back to the parking lot. It was interesting to read the history, but the signs need to be repaired and looked like the area had been neglected. Such a shame for something historic like this.

Not a lot to see but it is a nice stroll through the ruins and there is a nice park with picnic tables across the street. We've stopped here on two of our trips to Florida and each time someone has had to pick an orange or two.

If you find yourself near Homosassa springs, stop at the Sugar Mill ruins. It is a 20 min experience to see what's left of Yulee's Mill that provided for the confederates some time ago...interesting.
