The Gamble Plantation is a piece of history,when they have special events,it is worth going. The guided tour with costumed characters of the era and tales of farming,war and survival are interesting. Check when they have reinactment of the army or any special happenings,otherwise it can be a very quiet place to spend an afternoon.
Nice tour of Gamble house by informed ranger. House is well preserve with period pieces except two originals. Mostly the tour focuses on things in the house and not the lives of the family and slaves. Must have been miserable in Florida in 1845 with bugs, mosquitos, other wild life and the oppressive heat.
The Gamble Plantation provides great insight into life in the South during the mid 1800’s. We took the walking tour with the guide ($6.00 per adult) and it was very interesting. This plantation played a major role during the Civil War. There were lots of great antiques from the era spread throughout the mansion and the architecture is quite impressive.... 更多

Ted, our park ranger, was a terrific story teller providing interesting facts on the construction of the house, life in it's time period, and those who lived there.

Historical property. Did not take tour as it was closed. But, I don't think there would be much to tour. We walked around grounds and read plaques and looked at what was there. The Plantation is still in need of a lot of outside work. Nice to say we stopped, looked, and left.
There is a lot of southern history here. There is a guided tour that is good and was enjoyable. The grounds are interesting. This makes a good day trip and is easy to get to. Check the internet for open dates.
I was there yesterday to meet some people. It was basically closed. There were maintenance people around who were very helpful and explained the history of the site. Very interesting to see.
