An historical, scenic site with a small park attached. Nice area close to the water and restaurants nearby.

An interesting historical site if you already have some idea of how mills worked. Little information is available and site is not well maintained. It is easy to find due to road signs.

Not much there except some old ruins, if you like a bit of history, it's kind of cool. Some rubble from some old sugar mill.

What you see in the photo is all you're going to see. Small limestone wall, a chimney and a Mill Wheel. There's a sidewalk that walks around it explaining what it was like when the area was a Plantation. It's not an amusement park. It's a FREE historical site. That's all. If you're into local history, come on down to... More

Very interesting bit of history. But was upset by the use of racial terms was still used.You do get a good look into the history of the sugar industry and miss use of other races to profit the "white man" Cracker boss!

This "attraction" is merely a small ruin with a small park about. I don't know what I was expecting, but certainly was underwhelmed.

You can get a look at an interesting part of Florida's history at this site, which is located right along the road. Several signs tell the story, and you can see it all with a quick walk around the small but interesting historic site.

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
