A Step Back in Time at White Dog Plantation.


The address for White Dog Plantation is Coca Cola Avenue, Havana, Florida. What is not to love about the name of the property and that entire address? This retreat sits on more than 46 acres just 16 miles from Interstate 10 and Tallahassee. There are eight historic buildings, a large spring, hiking trails, gardens and a four- acre dog park.The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and dates to the mid-1820s when Dr. Malcom Nicholson pur- chased 4,400 acres and built his planta- tion house on the site.

bit, to take more time and enjoy nature


with her dogs. She would love to sell White Dog Plantation to someone who would keep the premise and continue to maintain the property.

that struck us was the peace and quiet. That, and how dark it was outside except for the moon and stars. The well-appointed rooms are all decorated with antiques. Lynn is a dog lover and created a 15-acre off leash dog


park in Gainesville just so her rescued American Eskimo dogs would have a place to run. Dog Wood Park in Gainesville became so successful, Lynn purchased another piece of proper- ty in Jacksonville and created a second Dog Wood Park.
