Interior view of the main house at Kingsley Plantation - Jacksonville, Florida.
Series 236, Box 4, FF34
Kingsley Plantation was a state park from the 1950s until 1989. Tours of the house, furnished with antiques purchased in the 1950s and 1960s, were offered by park staff. In 1989, U.S. Representative Charles Bennett negotiated the creation of the Timucuan Ecological and Historical Preserve, which would include national, state, and city properties and parks. As part of the negotiation, the State of Florida purchased Fort George Island to be used as a state park, but transferred Kingsley Plantation to the National Park Service.
Through the window, which faces north, can be seen the Fort George River and Big Talbot Island.
