My Bucket list

The Kingsley Plantation off Heckscher Drive on Fort George Island is my addition to my personal bucket list this week. It is one of the few remaining examples of the plantation system of territorial Florida and the site of what may be the oldest plantation house in the state. Plantation owner Zephaniah Kingsley was married to a Senegalase woman, Anna Madgigine Jai, whom Kingsley originally purchased as a slave.

This month is a great time to visit Kingsley because of  weekend celebrations that are taking place.  Click <HERE> for more information about Kingsley and the celebrations.
