Own a piece of history – Chambers Island, aka Port Inglis, is a 118-acre private island on the Gulf of Mexico, at the mouth of the Withlacoochee River. This beautiful and historic island was America’s largest phosphate port just prior to WWI. Now it can be your private retreat along the Nature Coast of Florida, with beautiful sunsets and great fishing just a cast away.
Two separate tax parcels make up the island, both located within the Town of Yankeetown, and each may be developed separately according to the town.
