Florida is home to a few standing historic Sugarmill sites. This one, literally located right on a road is cared for extremely well by the Fl. state park system and offers a glimpse at a time gone by that none can remember but very few can interpret well. Sometimes when I drive by I think of the hard work that went into the construction and the really hard work that went into producing sugar from cane in the hot Florida sun. A postage stamp sized state park with a ton of historical power.

This is a free attraction and it's right alongside the road with parking. Since it is part of a larger state park, there are picnic tables and restrooms.

There is not much left of the ruins, but it's an interesting walk around them. There are interpretive signs so you can read what the various remains once were. There is some stonework, some machinery and gears, and a cane press. The cooking kettles are particularly interesting, and the 40 foot chimney still stands. The mill produced sugar before and during the Civil War, and was once part of a 5,000 acre plantation.

It won't take long to see, but it's fun to learn a bit of Florida's history.
