Epping Forest Yacht Club is located in Northeast Florida on the St. John's River in the city of Jacksonville.

The 25 room mansion located on the Epping Forest Yacht Club grounds was formerly the residence of an American industrialist named Alfred I. Dupont.

This luxurious and historic mansion has been recognized as an American landmark by the United States Department of the Interior, which has included the location on the "National Register of Historic Places".

In 1926, construction on the mansion began under the supervision of Mr. Dupont and his architect, Harold Saxelbye.

After the Duponts passed away, the Mason family purchased the home and lived there for more than a decade before selling to the Gate Petroleum company.

The Gate Petroleum company restored the mansion and transformed it into the Epping Forest Yacht Club for all the residents of Jacksonville to enjoy.
