At the corner of Mission and Old Mission Roads in New Smryna Beach, a narrow dirt road leads west under ancient live oaks to an archaeological site that was long mistaken for an early Spanish mission. But the coquina walls belong to the Cruger-dePeyster Sugar Mill, established in 1830 and abandoned in 1835 after a Seminole raid, and this park tells its story.

The sugar mill, once part of the Cruger-dePeyster Plantation, was built in the early 19th century. This 17-acre historic site contains the ruins of the coquina sugar factory that was raided during a war between the Seminole Indians and the United States.
