Enjoyed reading the info placards about history of the sugar mill. There is a short walk thru a level path that shows a lot of the local vegetation that I don't get to see in Tennessee. Took less than an hour to see everything.

A bit difficult to find but worth the effort, especially for history buffs. About 1/2 hr is all that is needed. Shaded and restrooms. We didn't see the nature trail nor any botanical garden.

Sugar Mill Ruins are one of several examples of the importance of the sugar industry to the Florida economy. Disease, Indian attacks and weak resistance brought an end to most of the sugar plantations. At the time, the sugar industry was worth the risks.

We stopped in to see the Sugar Mill Ruins after reading about this site elsewhere...and it was a lovely and interesting stop. We walked around the Mill, walked the little nature trail, and had a lovely time in the 20 minutes we were there.

Definitely worth checking out for a quick stop. We were there less than 30 minutes, enjoyed walking around the ruins and reading about them. Also a little walk in the woods was a fun and easy exploration.

Nice place! The sugar mill isn't large and it's a little hard to find but it was a pretty site! Apparently there is a trail but I didn't see it. I'd go again just to view the scenery. It's nicely preserved !

There is not much to see at this site but the rest rooms are great. We stopped at this one and the Dunlawton Sugar Mills Garden - Port Orange (a few miles north) and that one has much more to see if you are really...More

Yes it is wheel chair accessible there are paths around it with plaques which explain some things about the ruins. There isn't any thing to go into or climb. I believe someone has this place confused with another location... More
