History of Packwood’s Place ~ Oyster House
There’s a spot on the river in South East Volusia County that has been home to world famous oysters for the last 69 years. Through it’s cuisine, atmosphere and history Packwood’s Place became a Florida jewel.
Spain deeded this land in 1803 – one of the area’s first land grants. My grandparents met there in 1949. I’ve eaten there with family. It’s a rustic building only open part of the year. Large parties and reservations are required. The menu is simple. This is a once and lifetime experience with incredible food.
Packwood’s Place started at 600 acres of waterfront and wooded property more than 200 years ago. Now there’s a home and the restaurant on the property – built by the Packwood family over generations. 3 shell mounds stood on the property, and Native artifacts were discovered during construction.
This acreage also housed a fishing camp, a shell quarry (the shell sold all over Florida in the late 1800s and early 1900s to make roads all over Florida), the location of a raid by Natives, and the resting place of a number of the early settling families that made it their home.
