The Timucuan National Preserve is dedicated to educating the public concerning the lives of enslaved people and their quest for basic human rights. At Kingsley Plantation, a unit of Timucuan National Preserve, visitors who attend ranger-guided programs leave with the concept of how the hope of freedom affected the lives of enslaved Africans and planters alike. They learn that this freedom was often attained in many different ways at a great cost. The common thread expressed throughout our programs is the yearning of millions of people to become free and the struggle to achieve this most coveted right.
