Well worth going a few miles off the beaten track to fine this place. You'll learn a lot about the history of slavery, and maybe get a new perspective, as well as enjoying a pleasant couple of hours by the river. For info the last...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,...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...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...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

But if you want to tour the house you need reservations ahead of time. Tours are only Saturday at 11:00am, maybe Sunday too.

Kingsley Plantation is approximately 29 minutes from the airport give or take a few. The main house is under renovation but they do give tours twice a day. You can still get the audio tours, free of charge, but it doesn't... More

Pretty sure they are open year round. They have a self guided tour that was pretty interesting.
