Additional Details:
Gamble Mansion The Gamble mansion which was built prior to the Civil War stands in the heart of the little City of Ellenton, surrounded by many interesting landmarks. Mr. Gamble built this colonial mansion on his sugar plantation, then comprising about three thousand acres, furnishing employment to three hundred slaves. This building stands today as one of the oldest and most historic points of interest in the South. It was in one of the upper chambers of the old mansion that Judiah P. Benjamin, Secretary of the Confederacy found a hiding place from the federal army before making his escape to England
