Try Something New
"If you have an image of slavery, there’s a good chance it’s either “Gone With the Wind” or “Twelve Years a Slave.” But there is a Florida story of slavery that is neither of these. In fact, it’s a story that could take place only in Florida, with its heritage as a Spanish colony.
It all happened at Kingsley Plantation, a historic site under the National Park system, in an unspoiled coastal stretch of Florida east of Jacksonville.
Kingsley Plantation is a little known park in an out-of-the-way location. It is physically beautiful and emotionally evocative; in short, well worth a detour to visit. It’s part of the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, which probably wins the prize as Florida’s most obscure national park."
