About the Park
Princess Place Preserve with its rich history and 1500 pristine acres, attracts nature enthusiasts from near and far. Visitors can take in the environment on one of the many hiking trails, spend time fishing in the salt marshes along the Matanzas River and Pellicer Creek, or camp out under the stars.
The preserve is a popular spot for equestrian enthusiasts. With an equestrian campsite and plenty of riding trails it is easy to embrace nature while enjoying a ride. Come and visit us for a glimpse of old Florida. Whether you hike, horseback ride, canoe/kayak, camp, fish or picnic, you will have memorable experience at Princess Place Preserve.
This beautiful 1,500-acre preserve situated in the northern part of Flagler County was purchased by Henry Cutting in 1886 and passed on to his widow Angela Mills Cutting Worden, who eventually married Boris Scherbatoff, an exiled Russian prince. Angela assumed the title of princess and it was then that the once named "Cherokee Grove" came to be known as "Princess Place.
The original lodge built by Henry Cutting stills stands as Flagler County's oldest intact structure. Also on-site is Florida's very first in-ground swimming pool.
