New Smyrna Sugar Mill Ruins


New Smyrna Sugar Mills Ruins

Explore Early New Smyrna Beach History

Once a productive sugar mill constructed in 1830, the Sugar Mill Ruins are all that remain on the 17 acre historic site after the  mill and other buildings were destroyed during the war between the Seminole Indians and the United States just 5 years later. Only a few Coquina stone walls and cooling vats are all that remain of the area’s molasses and sugar industry.

  • The park is open daily.
  • The entry road to the site is only 1 lane, be very careful exiting Mission Road to the site.
  • There is a covered picnic area and charcoal grills available (bring your own charcoal).
