This is the mill wheel from the former sugar mill at De Leon, Central Florida, and dates back to 1832. It is no longer in use, and is mounted near where the mill once stood. There is considerable beauty about this fire damaged, very old mill wheel, standing exposed to the elements, and missed by many of the park visitors.
