“Original Cracker Farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This was a true operating farm until 1983 when the last surviving family member donated the farm to the state of Florida. The buildings are all original on this 150 year old farm. There are many original items the family actually used. Great self guided tour opportunity.

“Ross Family & Dudley Farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Oct. 13, 2012, I along with several members of the Ross Family Reunion had an awesome tour of the facility. As an African American who grew up in the Gainesville area, it was great to hear of the contributions made by our family members in Florida history and about their day to day lives. There were also pictures of family members and what they did on the farm. It makes me want to dig deeper especially for the younger generation so they can know what contributions local Blacks did in the history of the local area. Thanks to the volunteers who were very knowledgeable and friendly.

This state park was/is a working farm that was donated to the state after being farmed for 3 generations. Great way to see what life was like in the past.
