  • This is a really interesting spot for what it is! We enjoyed the informational plaques that are in almost every room that explain what that room was originally used for. The two dollar per person admission made sense because it was a relatively quick stop. If you are already in Hammocks Park, then I'd recommend seeing this. There were a lot of surprising places.
  • Great piece of history that we just happened upon. The kids were excited to walk thru a "castle"! Be sure to walk along the path directly across from this castle for a good chance to see some gators.
