McIntosh Sugar Mill Park (Tabby Ruins)
This park is located off Charlie Smith Highway in St. Marys, just pass the Stimpson gate to Kingsbay Naval Base. The historic tabby ruins from the old sugar mill are located in this park. There is also a nice oak tree shaded area with picnic tables.
The ruins are believed to have been built in the late 1820s. It is a tabby structure with very thick walls. At the time the sugarhouse was constructed, it is believed that thick-walled buildings such as this tabby one built by John McIntosh were essential to ensure the warmth needed for superior sugar production.
