Summary

Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins Historic State Park (CI124B) contains the remnants of a nineteenth-century sugar mill, associated with Margarita plantation located in Homosassa, Florida. At present, documentation of the plantation boundaries is limited and locations of various associated buildings, including slave quarters, are unknown. To address this issue, a reconnaissance survey is underway in the vicinity of the mill to identify associated plantation structures and boundaries. Preliminary results indicate that remains of the plantation are not in the immediate vicinity of the sugar mill, warranting further survey.
