Dudley Farm Historic State ParkStep back in time with a visit to the fully-restored, antebellum Dudley Farm. This historic State Park in Newberry, Fl features living history demonstrations, special events, and more.

Historic Dudley Farm is a one-of-a-kind, thoroughly authentic, 325-acre, working farm and Florida state park.

The facility presents the evolution of North Florida farming, from the pioneer days of the 1850’s through to the gasoline-powered 1940’s. This era of change is presented from the perspective of the Dudley family, generations of whom lived out their lives here.
