Free, quick and close. My family and I where headed to the beach and I decided to add some history to our beach visit (Ages 41,39,11,8, and 5). Before you go, look up New Smyrna Sugar Mill Ruins or Cruger and DePeyster Sugar Mill. This site is 10-15 minutes from Turtle Mound and is a great tie-in when talking about Florida and Timucuan history. This sugar mill was destroyed around 1835 by the local indians. There is a short nature walk that is paved with crushed shells so its easy to walk on (nothing to see but trees). The total nature walk length is a 5-10 min walk.
