Long Description:
The Fairchild Oak is one of the largest Live Oak trees in the south. The tree has stood for centuries, silent witness to the clearing of the wilderness for plantations, and, in 1836, the destruction of the settlements on Bulow Creek by raiding Seminole Indians. The park contains numerous plantation ruins, most hidden in the undergrowth of the forest. All ruins are protected as state archaeological sites.
