The Land & History

What is today Oldfields Plantation was first established circa 700AD. It is cherished by the State of Florida's Bureau of Historic Sites and Properties as the site of a "Prehistoric City" containing the tallest Indian mound (Letchworth Mound) in the State of Florida which is now located on the adjoining State Park. The location then, as today, was highly regarded due to its unique "lake drain" (which today is regarded as one of the most beautiful sites in North Florida) as well as its wealth of natural resources and ecological diversity. Today, the adjacent 6,300 acre Lake Miccosukee is home to one of Florida's highest concentrations of waterfowl.

In what are some of Florida's oldest recorded records (on a survey dated in 1824), today's plantation was described and named "Indian Old Fields". Essentially, this site has been the "capital" of Florida for longer than Tallahassee itself! Perhaps Tallahassee (15 minutes to the west) should have actually been founded at this location, which may be better called, "Florida's original capital." Its conservation/ecological/historical importance ranking, as measured against all properties in Florida, is among the highest in the state. In furtherance of its importance, in 2005 and 2009, the State of Florida acquired a conservation easement on Oldfields so that no more than six homes may be added to the current property.

Today, the property continues in its 30+ year tradition as being exclusively managed for recreational hunting. Its historical and ecological wealth is protected from development by the limitations on subdivision and the number of residences. The plantation is ensured to be continually operated for the benefit of wildlife, hunting, timber, preservation, and entertaining, and is proudly included in the ranking of over 165,000 acres of prestigious Red Hills Plantations already protected by a conservation easement.
