About Dudley Farm Historic State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
V. Morgan Tyrone
Schools are back in session, so we expect another busy year of school tours at Dudley Farm Historic State Park. Schools and other groups interested in guided tours are welcome to experience a true 19th century Florida farm in the mornings from Wednesday through Sunday to see a piece of Florida's agricultural past . We are closed Mondays and Tuesdays annually and do not have guided tours in the afternoons the remainder of the week. Self-guided tours are always available during operating hours Wednesday through Fridays in October through July. Please plan group tours by calling the Dudley Farm phone number and leaving a message with your group name, your phone number, a requested date, and number of people for the tour. Our staff will get back with you soon.
Please be mindful of discarded cigarettes in the park because they may start a structure fire or wildfire. All of our historic wooden structures are susceptible to fire and flame. Pets are only allowed in the Visitor Center area, not in or around the Farmstead. Also all water sources at the Farmstead are non-potable water for demonstration purposes only (such as the hand pump) and not for public consumption.
Please call the Farm for details on our upcomming events, such as: our Reconstruction Era Event and National Public Lands Day events in September, a Quilt Show in October, Cane Day in December, and Plow Days in February.
School groups and organizations must make reservations for tours one month in advance. Groups are limited to 40 people. For more information and a Program Reservation Form please call 352-472-1142.
Dudley Farm Historic State Park is located seven miles west of I-75 on State Road 26 between Newberry and Gainesville.
