Been coming here for most of my life. It's that beautiful. Well restored plantation located on a mostly unspoiled barrier island that mostly now belongs to the State of Florida and is part of the state park system. The drive in through the overhanging live oaks and Spanish Moss will have you oooing and awwwhing. Caution: bring bug spray, especially... More

Set on the water in a beautiful old Florida setting. The plantation is historical. The story is intriguing and romantic. It is like going to a different time. It is like a short vacation.

Stopped here while touring the area. The history will make you sad but also make you happy that we've moved beyond the dark history of this time period. This location is placed a few miles down a dirt/gravel road that is lined with beautiful trees, just drive slowly to enjoy it and avoid any potholes you may come across. There... More

If visiting Amelia Island this is on your way, stop by it's worth the time. Beautiful plantation home with slave houses still intact! Great story and great time.

Although interesting, it needs more. It would be nice to be allowed inside the plantation home, especially if it were decorated and furnished with period furniture. Same with the barn. The separate kitchen offered more. Perhaps if we had taken the audio tour, we would have gotten more out of it. It is interesting to speculate how people lived not... More

Wow! Didn't know what I was going to see when I visited this place, but was not thinking it would be the beautiful, peaceful place that it is. The drive into the plantation is absolutely beautiful. The grand oak trees, palm trees, saw palmettos and other greenery that line the road are gorgeous. And just knowing that this is all... More

I visited the Kingsley Plantation after seeing it online. First of all I did not expect the rather long secluded drive, and I recommend going very slowly as there are tons of deep potholes that aren't always seen. However, once you get there, it is a very nice place to visit. There was no charge to just walk the grounds... More

If you think that you know history, some of this may surprise you. All walking, not wheel chair accessible. Pick a nice sun shiny day and take your time to enjoy this piece of history

Our family enjoyed the tour of the Kingsley Plantation. It was a sunny day and the perfectly blue sky set a gorgeous backdrop for pictures and viewing. We did access the historical self tour, and while my husband listened and followed for the entirety, I did not. I preferred to listen to the birds and soak up the plantation that... More
