Built of heart pine and cypress by enslaved labor, this historic 6,200 square foot house is one of the few remaining antebellum homes in North Central Florida. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the restored Haile House is now a museum which interprets Florida plantation life and educates visitors about the economic, cultural, and social issues of the era in which the house was built.

Unique, talking walls!

Well worth the visit; $5 per person gets you an hour long tour by a volunteer docent well versed on the plantation history and the history of the Haile family.
The writing on the walls of most of the rooms gives a peak at life from the 1850's to the early 1900's. I was also impressed with the knowledge imparted about the people enslaved there; you even see pieces of furniture built by enslaved craftsmen. The restoration of the house is marvelous. Truly unlike any other historic home in America.
