Tuckahoe, also known as the Leach Mansion or as the Mansion at Tuckahoe, is an historic home located at 1921 North East Indian River Drive in Jensen Beach, Martin County, Florida. The name was thought to be a Native American word for “welcome”. It is inside the present day Indian RiverSide Park and is atop the Mount Elizabeth Archeological Site, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 14, 2002.
On November 30, 2005, Tuckahoe itself was added to the National Register of Historic Places. On November 4, 2010, the local Daughters of the American Revolution chapter placed a plaque on the building.
Abandoned for quite some time, it was a popular place for ghost hunters to try to capture orbs and strange sounds on their audio recorders – and many claimed to have succeeded. The building remained disused until 2009 when it was fully restored – and it is now a popular place to hold weddings.
