At this National Park site, the history of freedom and enslavement takes on a different perspective. The lives of Zephaniah Kingsley and his wife Anna, herself a former slave illustrate this unique and little known part of Florida's history. Historic structures include the barn, kitchen house, the remains of 25 tabby slave cabins, and the planter’s house, which is the oldest standing plantation era house in Florida.
Admission is free, open Wednesday-Sunday from 9:00am - 4:45pm. A self guided audio tour is available whenever the grounds are open, and National Park staff are on site to help with questions and interpretation.
Additionally, the planter's house is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am-Noon and 2pm-4pm, no reservations required during those open house hours, and staff are available in the house to assist with information.
The Plantation visitor center/gift shop is open Wednesday-Sunday, 9:00am to 4:30pm.
