The Dunlawton Plantation and Sugar Mill was a plantation that was destroyed by the Seminoles at the beginning of the Second Seminole War. The ruins are located west of Port Orange, Florida off Nova Road.

On August 28, 1973, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places under the title of Dunlawton Plantation-Sugar Mill Ruins.

The ruins are now part of the Dunlawton Sugar Mill Gardens. The botanical garden includes interpretive signs about the enclosed ruins, large concrete sculptures of dinosaurs and a giant ground sloth, a gazebo, and plantings of grasses, flowers, bushes and native plants under a canopy of oak trees.
