Everyone should take a few minutes and experience Gamble Place. It's tucked away in Port Orange along Spruce Creek. There are several acres and some historical structures that are really a treasure for the area.
Located next to Cracker Creek, this is a good history of an old hunting/fishing cottage for the Gamble Family. Not fancy but peaceful Old Florida history.
I had no idea this existed. Enjoyed it immensely during the spring visit I made with a friend. Yes, I wish the Snow White cottage was open, but it's just a fun place to walk around. Cute little dinosaur mural in the ladies room. You can't beat the price. Not disappointed at all.
So, the building is interesting to walk around...but you get very little information since there are no "tours" except pre-arranged school/large tour groups. This is a shame, as you can see that there is a lot of history here. All the houses are closed off, but I suppose what can you expect for $2 admission.

Off the beaten path, worth the time to find real history about the Port Orange area. Lovely setting, west of I-95, near the famous Spruce Creek Fly-In.
I found this place simply by following the brown and white historical district signs. Tucked away down a winding road appears Cracker Creek (privately owned park). You must go to the desk in order to get into Gamble Place. Once inside the fence, you see the replica of Snow White's House with the Seven Dwarfs, the Witches home and the... 更多
Great little park for the kids and family. Gamble and Walt Disney were very good friends and Gamble built Walt a Snow White and 7 Dwarfs house on the property. (Very Cool) A great place for nature walks to see the resident Peacocks and to explore Cracker Creek. You can bring a picnic or call ahead to see if the... 更多
