After the Civil War, without slave labor, it became impossible to operate cotton plantations. In the years following the war the plantation on Fort George Island was a farm, a tourist resort, a citrus grove and finally a retreat for wealthy Jacksonville residents. Ribault Club, built in the 1920s, has recently been renovated and is available for weddings and other events. There’s a small museum in several of the rooms but other than that not much to do.
The club is accessible.
The road to the club is one lane with overhanging branches so use caution if you have a large RV. The parking lot is large enough for RVs. Club
