With a historic resort, a beautiful plantation home and miles of scenic views, this was among the most annoying state parks I've visited.

I am happy that I took the time to visit Fort George Island and the Kingsley Plantation. The paved road into the complex transitioned into a rough impacted dirt road with quite a few pot holes. I did enjoy the Kingsley Plantation and the opportunity to learn of conditions and lifestyles from hundreds of years ago. The enslavement of Africans to work this property was hard to imagine, but in reality, it did happen.

I have gone all over Jacksonville as there is a lot of history and culture to explore. This is a quiet little place with a few interesting things to see. Worth the trip.

This area contains a look at two societies. Firstly, there is the look at the ruins of the slave cabins. You get to envision the hard working slaves working the house gardens and the acres of Sea Island cotton. The Kingsley Plantation where the owners lived is open for visits on the weekend, but the kitchen remains open for visitation as does the Clubhouse. This plantation ownership was different than almost every other plantation in the South. The mistress, or wife of the owner, was a Senegalese woman with strong business skills. The Ribault Club House Visitor's Center is also open. It is very interesting to study the "tabby" material used to build the structures in this park. Before you leave, take a short walk to the boat dock and imagine an active scene with bales of cotton leaving and supplies coming to the plantation. This park is a trip in history carried on the breezes from the sea.
