Small park full of shade and shelter and area to walk and play. Historical site in view of shelter, quiet and scenic. State park lover should stop!

Well, there's not much here...but I'm interested in history and enjoyed it. The mill is from the early 1800's and gives a great exhibit of the slave labor used to produce brown sugar

Very close to the State Park, loved seeing the giant metal bowls. Amazing how people could make things like that back then. Well preserved, and interesting.

The Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins are just what's pictured when you search it. It's about 10 minutes south of Crystal River on US-19 and 2.5 miles west. It was very underwhelming. In my opinion a waste of gas to get there.

Neat little historic site, but very small. Takes only about 10 minutes. Lots of traffic coming both ways so crossing the road to look at the machinery was a little tricky.

A cool little site to stop and see some old historical machinery. Even the little guys enjoyed seeing the equipment from the early days. Only takes a few minutes to walk around and snap a few pics.

We stopped by Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins on a recent visit to the area. After leaving Homosassa Wildlife State Park (which is fantastic!), we drove to this site. It's on the side of the road with self-guided signs providing history of the ruins. Only took about 10 minutes to walk around. Worth a stop if you can.
