The Kingsley Plantation is a fascinating historic site in Jacksonville, Florida. Also known as the Zephaniah Kingsley Plantation Home and Buildings, the plantation is deemed as the home of the oldest structure in the state.

The Kingsley Plantation features the plantation home which dates back to the late eighteenth century. It was built by John McQueen around 1797 to 1798. However, it became best known for being the home of the Kingsley family, with Zephaniah Kingsley as its head. The family was noted for being a multiracial household who paid no heed to issues of slavery and race.

The Kingsley Plantation now serves as an open air museum inside the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. It currently features the historic plantation house, a number of slave cabins, and an interpretive garden among others.
