Text:

Near this site on the Tomoka River, stood "Carrikfergus Plantation", settle by Thomas H. Dummett, a native of Barbados, B.W.I., in 1825. The Dummett holdings were extensively planted in sugar and contained a sugar mill and large rum distillery. Worked by slaves, "Carrikfergus" and other plantations were destroyed in 1836 by Indians during the Seminole War. This disaster permanently destroyed the plantation economy of this area.
