Dudley Farm Historic State ParkDudley Farm is both a Historic State Park and a working farm in North Central Florida. The 1880’s homestead includes original buildings and staff in period clothing demonstrating the evolution of Florida farming.

The Dudley family moved from Charleston, SC to North Central Florida in the mid-1800s, establishing what we know today as Dudley Farm.

Other unique structures on the site include a canning house, a syrup house and mill, dairy shed, and a tobacco barn.
