Dummit's Tomb

  • Address: Canova Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168
  • Phone: (386) 428-1600
This above ground tomb, located in the middle of a residential street, commemorates the son of one of the first settlers in New Smyrna Beach. Douglas Dummit, a sugar merchant, Justice of the Peace and orange grower, who lived in New Smyrna Beach in the mid to late 1800s, married an African American slave girl and had four children, three girls and a boy named Charles. Born in 1844. Charles was raised in New Smyrna Beach, was schooled in the North then returned to New Smyrna Beach where he was killed in 1860 on a hunting trip when his rifle accidentally went off. His tomb was erected where it still stands today in a residential area in the middle of Canova Dr. There is no fee to visit Dummit’s Tomb. Consequently, it is Douglas who is credited with starting the strain that led to Florida’s famous Indian River citrus.
