About the only thing left are the walls and the details surrounding what happened when the making of sugar was a risky business one hundred fifty years ago.
The machinery for this business was then “moved near the river” where the mill was rebuilt. The Seminole Indians also burned this Sugar Mill down, thus leaving only these historical traces of its existence preserved for future generations to visit. Today, this second place is known as the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens in Port Orange, Florida.
Note: Coquina (Florida’s native stone) was the building block for the Sugar Mill.
