a quiet free park. the road to get to the park is not very good so be prepared. On the weekends there are interpreters in period costume. many areas to visit and understand the history of the time and people.

Be sure to look this one up and plan to spend a couple hours touring the remnants of the early slave quarters.

The Kingsley Plantation depicts the horrible period of slave ownership in the US, and should be visited by all to get a broader understanding of the times. This plantation is unique in the the owner was a polygamist and his wives were former African slaves themselves. To see the plantation, you can either use a MP3 player audio tour (which is what we did), or fund the brochure and do a self guided tour and reach the signs for information at each stop. I felt the audio tour was generally good, but did get a little long. By the end, I was skipping parts of it and reading the signs instead.

We visited Kingsley Plantation on a rainy Sunday recently. For many years, this was a plantation run by slaves. Their stories and living conditions are on display here. There many old slave quarters near the front gate. The historic plantation home and barn were fascinating to walk through though they were largely empty. The home is only open at certain times so make sure to check ahead to catch a time when it can be toured. There is a gift shop with many books and souvenirs. Also, there is a dock with excellent views of the waterways of Timucuan Preserve. The road out to Kingsley Plantation is rough and full of potholes. It felt like stepping back into old Florida. It was definitely worth the visit!
