I've ridden by it many times, such as last month riding with The Wife down to Micanopy.

Cool beans. Traded some emails to get more info on the site:

It is the former site of Daniel Scott's antebellum plantation home and the plantation acreage which is now most of Grove Park. It was about 4000 square feet not including the large summer kitchen and housed 5 family folks. About 55 to 60 enslaved AA folks lived in 5 one room shacks a distance from the home. (I have the first names of all these people.) The primary cash crop raised was Sea Island Cotton. They also raised fodder and food stuffs, and probably had numerous outbuildings. (Most of this info from various sections of the census.) Several acres of the site was donated to the County while the home was still standing and in a deplorable state. We tried to save as much as possible, but eventually even the 2 story fireplace had to go as it was leaning. One of our vounteers located the underground cistern (for water). We have copies of the original land purchase and the original slave bill of sale. We also found some interesting older items on site. There are those that believe that the older, smaller white home behind the structure was the overseers home, but this has not been confirmed.

Google maps linky.

Duh.

I can offer clues if need be. For instance, it's not in Duval county. And it's a VERY historic cemetery. Veterans of seven wars are buried there.

Need more?

The town was a very popular place in the nineties.
