Turpentine Still Relocation
The turpentine still exhibit at the park was donated in 1964 by Glenn Lewis from the Estate of W.A. Lewis Sr. The turpentine still was moved from the Orange Community, 18 miles south of Bristol, and was reconstructed at the park in a replica of the original structure. The structure and the associated collection of authentic distillery artifacts represent the turpentine industry and naval stores of the early 1900s. The turpentine still has been used for interpretive and educational purposes in St. Andrews State Park. No turpentine production activities were conducted on park property.
Over time, the structure has sustained damage from rot, insects and the elements. It was severely damaged by Hurricane Michael in October 2018. The Florida Park Service is working with the descendants of the original donor. Arrangements have been made for the artifacts to be relocated to the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement in Blountstown, Florida.
