Interesting to walk around and see the way it used to be. Located on the side of the road with a park and parking area across the street. Nice shady place to walk around and take a look. Only takes a few minutes.

We walked through the ruins and read facts about processing cane juices into sugar for Confederate troops during the Civil War. The visual remains, such as the vats that captured the juices and the mill wheel mechanisms were instrumental in understanding the sugar making process. Enjoyed the education.

This roadside park features a brief glimpse into one aspect of life in Old Florida, nineteenth-century sugar production. The self-guided interpretation is sparse but complete enough to tell most of the story. Wear bug spray.

Good for the lessons. Some of the signs were missing. Park across the street with a bathroom. Plenty of parking

It's a quick stop, but worth it. Interesting if you're a history type of person. A great place for a 'photography adventure' as the ruins offer interesting opportunities.

This is just what it is called. Very simple, self-guided place to visit. They have a picnic area, but no meal facilities for purchasing.

While just a road side attraction, the relics here are most interesting and informational. I can't imaging the amount of work the slaves had to do to operate this mill in heat of late summer and fall. The site brochure gives added information but still makes me wonder what happened to the people involved.

It is an interesting place to stop to see. There's not much to it and will only take about 10 minutes to read the markers. Worth a stop if you are into historical locales.

It is a small moment of history from a time gone by. If you are driving by stop and learn about the history of this beautiful place. Shame it could not be maintained in a way to show the significance of the sugar mill and the plantation it used to be a part of. There were some really useful leaflets... More

Enroute down Yulee Dr. into historical Old Homosassa this is place to stop & visit. But go across the road visit the printing museum. Go out back of there to the garden - more history. Discover what a Cuban sandwich is like. A great lunch stop. You will step back in time! Ask for a personal tour.
