Haile Plantation, Florida

Haile Village Center, 2010

Haile Plantation, an unincorporated community and New Urbanism planned development, is a 2,600 household (1,700 acre) development of regional impact southwest of the city of Gainesville, within Alachua County, Florida, United States. While the Village Center provides the life of the community, most residents reside within easy walking distance in one of two associations: Haile Plantation Homeowners' Association and Haile Plantation West Homeowners' Association.

Haile Village Center is the neighborhood center within the development. Residents and business in Haile Plantation use Gainesville, Florida for mailing addresses. The development's name sake is Thomas Evans Haile, a South Carolina Sea Island Cotton grower that established his plantation there in 1854.[1] Enslaved Africans lived on and worked the land. The Haile family ancestors include some who served in the American Revolutionary War. The Historic Haile Homestead, known as Kanapaha, still stands and was featured in the 1979 movie "Gal Young 'Un", based on a Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings story.

New construction at Haile Plantation started in the late 1970s. Celebrity residents of Haile Plantation include current basketball head coach Billy Donovan.[2]
