William Dunn Moseley’s Plantation

We just so happened to stumble across an abandoned plantation home in Northern Florida.  The home was once owned by the first governor of Florida named William Dunn Moseley in the 1860s. The surrounding block was once an orange grove but is now a heavily populated residential area. William was well known for supporting the agriculture of his time, and resolving conflicts between white settlers and the Seminole Indians in the 1840s.

      Hello Susan, it is still standing, I pass by it often. There was a caretaker there, I believe that is what he was anyway, for a while and the home was up for sale. Then the for sale sign was gone as was the man I would see sitting on the front porch near the entry to the home;-)

    Is this location verified as to belonging to the Governor? Where can I get more information on the Plantation and the Indian slaves the Governor used.

    I was really excited when I seen this. I have heard about it all my life but had no idea that it still existed. My many great’s grandfather was William Dunn Moseley. I would love to know how to find it as I would love to go see it in person. Just watching the video touched my heart so much. Now I want to really go and find it and see it in person. If it was up for sale I hope that the new owners renovate it back to its original status. It is a true piece of Florida history.

    Please note that the house was constructed Circa 1875, twelve years after Governor Moseley’s passing in 1863.
    The property was once part of Governor Moseley’s estate but the parcel was sold by his son to the family that actually had the house constructed.
    Obviously whoever took this photos was trespassing and with that increasing the house’s vulnerability for vandalism and further destruction.
