History Buffs, kids, and new comer's will enjoy. Easy to navigate and usually good parking. The New Smyrna Beach verses St. Augustine debater's are sometimes seen wandering here.

A nice and quick historical stop in NSB. It is difficult to locate, but it is worth searching for. I was only here for 10 minutes or so, but enjoyed reading all of the informational signs about the sugar making process.

Great Place a must see! Its sort of hidden back on the woods and you are free to walk around at your own leisure. Free

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.

I have been dropping by the Sugar Mill Ruins for years. Always nice to see that it is the same pleasant place for a quick stop, mostly in shade. The ruins, once thought to be Spanish, are simply of an old sugar mill (pictures). A...More

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.
