Florida's West Coast Parks - jimsislandphotography
The Gamble Plantation Historic State Park preserves the mansion of an antebellum sugar plantation.  Built in the mid-1800’s, the mansion is the only one of its kind on Florida’s west coast.  Major Gamble eventually owned over 3,500 acres for sugar production with slave labor but nature disasters and bad sugar prices drove him into debt and he sold the plantation in 1859.
