Gamble Place

A Historic Treasure

Thank you for your interest in Gamble Place. Currently, the Museum’s new Executive Director is evaluating the property and its associated programs have been suspended for the time being.

Guests to Gamble Place can step back in time to experience the same pristine environment that James N. Gamble (of Procter & Gamble) found so inviting during his first visit to the area in the late 1800's. This 175-acre property, included in the National Register of Historic Places features a historic home, cottage, and Citrus Packing House. The "Florida cracker-style" house, named "Egwanulti" (a Native American word meaning "by the water"), was built in 1907 and was used as a winter retreat. The once privately-owned Citrus Packing House is the only one currently in existence in its original location in Florida. This vanishing piece of history is significant to Florida and our visitors. 

In addition to the buildings, visitors can observe wildlife, ancient cypress trees, and beautiful azalea blossoms.

Located at 1819 Taylor Road in Port Orange, 1.5 miles west of I-95. Exit 256 and go west on Taylor Road (SR 421) approximately 1.5 miles. At the Florida Historic Site marker, turn left down the 2-lane shell road. Gamble Place is approximately .5 miles down the shell road.
