Tomoka State Park
Tomoka State Park has 900-acres of land that is good for camping, canoeing, and a nature trail. The early Natives, Timucua's, were the first to live in this area and we know this because of the Nocorocoo village. You can kayak and canoe to see this village.
Backstory and Context
After the Seven Years War (1754-1763), the Timucua Indian population had almost disappeared, the rest were sent to Cuba since the British government gave 20,000 acres to Richard Oswald in 1766, which is currently Tomoka State Park. The land was used for indigo and other smaller plantations. You cannot see the village, Nocorocoo, anymore because it has been removed but you can still see some naturalized indigo that has gone untouched. There is the Mount Oswald Plantation that shows how the indigo was process and produced dyes.
