Join us on a tour of our rich plantation heritage
The Volusia Anthropological Society welcomes you to our community. We are delighted that you share our interest in understanding and preserving our rich history. This part of VolusiaHistory.com provides an overview of the plantation history of Volusia and Flagler counties dating back to 1763. Eight historic sites are open to the public.
Some of the sites have extensive sugar mill ruins. All that remains at other sites are memories. Yet all the sites are worth visiting. Interpretive signs at the sites will increase your understanding of the Florida plantation economy between 1753 and 1836.
