General Note

  • The sugar mill was also known as the Cruger and DePeyster Sugar Mill. Built sometime between 1825 and 1835, it was destroyed by Seminole Indians during the Second Seminole War in the 1830s.Before coming under control of the Florida Park Service as a Historic Site, the property was mistakenly thought by many to be the ruins of a Spanish mission for the Timucua Indians, Mission of Atocuimi. The site, which was located at 600 Old Mission Road, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on 12 August 1970
  • Accompanying note "Two miles west of New Smyrna Beach is the historic " Mission of Atocuimi," on grounds now maintained by the State Park Service. Built by Spaniards in the late 1600's, the coquina structure was later used as a sugar mill. In the New Smyrna Beach area are many relics of the past, centered near a community well-known for its summer and winter resort facilities."
