This site was interesting to see. The driveway is hard to see so drive slow. Remote spot for a picnic. It only takes about 15 minutes to see the historical part but it was a nice stop.

Surprisingly close to the main road there is this hidden secret, that tells you about the past. Short natural trial included

Overall it's cool to see but it's nothing really that special. Not much to do and you can walk the whole thing in roughly 10 minutes.

Stopped here for a brief visit while in New Smyrna Beach. The ruins are interesting to read about. It is very small and easy to miss the road for it. Bathrooms are very clean probably because not many people stop here.

Worth taking a short time out to visit and learn a little more about Florida's history and heritage. There is also a small nature trail that you can walk.

Hard to find and a bit hidden due to what seems to be a new road constructed nearby. Good learning experience for elementary age kids and a good family stop that will take at most 1hr to see all that is to be seen.

If you tired of the beach, this is a good place to spend some time. The place is really small, has ruins and short hiking trail. This is absolutely free but the turn road has no sign , you may pass is it at first try.

See the Sugar Mill ruins, it's pretty small, but very interesting! It's a bit difficult to find, so pay attention to the signs.

Went there on a whim...ever so glad i did. Lots of history here. Also, lots of shade as you walk through that makes the trip very comfortable. Amazing history that goes along with this. Strongly suggest this as an outing.

Historically significant, well presented, nicely maintained, and although a bit off the beaten path it is safe to visit. Handicap accessible, including modern bathroom facilities.
