Gamble Plantation Historic State Park

Gamble Plantation Historic State Park Review

Built in the 1840s, this antebellum mansion five miles northeast of Bradenton was home to Major Robert Gamble and is the headquarters of an extensive sugar plantation. It is the only surviving plantation house in South Florida. The Confederate secretary of state took refuge here when the Confederacy fell to Union forces. Picnic tables are available. Guided tours of the house are available six times a day.
