Old Florida

Located next to Cracker Creek, this is a good history of an old hunting/fishing cottage for the Gamble Family. Not fancy but peaceful Old Florida history.

We spend our winters in Ponce Inlet, next to Port Orange on the beach. I am a Procter & Gamble retiree, so was surprised to recently find a tie to the original Gamble Family nearby in Port Orange. This was originally a 700 acre parcel purchased by the oldest son of the original Procter and Gamble James N. Gamble. The... More

Everyone should take a few minutes and experience Gamble Place. It's tucked away in Port Orange along Spruce Creek. There are several acres and some historical structures that are really a treasure for the area.

Although Gamble Place has very irregular visiting hours, you can still take a pleasant stroll around the property any time during the day. Simply park in front of the main gate, walk a few feet through brush around the locked gates, and then continue a few hundred feet down the access road to the cottage, citrus packing house and Snow...

Little slice of country. You can take canoes & kayaks out for a paddle. Property is nice. They have a fire pit and a covered area to sit and eat.

I had no idea this existed. Enjoyed it immensely during the spring visit I made with a friend. Yes, I wish the Snow White cottage was open, but it's just a fun place to walk around. Cute little dinosaur mural in the ladies room. You can't beat the price. Not disappointed at all.

So, the building is interesting to walk around...but you get very little information since there are no "tours" except pre-arranged school/large tour groups. This is a shame, as you can see that there is a lot of history here. All the houses are closed off, but I suppose what can you expect for $2 admission.

We originally found this place years ago in the "Wierd Florida" book, we had a fantastic experience taking the river boat through old Florida, seeing wildlife and original buildings, but the best was snow whites cottage, a replica built on the grounds with the 7 dwarfs, it was magical and so not Disney. What a disappointment to return to find... More

We took a 2 hour drive to visit Gamble Place, we arrived at 1.30pm, gates were padlocked shut even though the gate and website say it is open until 2pm. As it is only open for such a limited time, it should at least be open when advertised.

Off the beaten path, worth the time to find real history about the Port Orange area. Lovely setting, west of I-95, near the famous Spruce Creek Fly-In.
