A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Warren Poplin

Welcome to Fort Mose Historic State Park!

August means the start of back to school activities.  Fort Mose is a great opportunity for a school field trip to learn about its important historical significance.  Teachers or other group leaders please contact Pete Scalco at (904) 823-2232 or Peter.M.Scalco@dep.state.fl.us to set up a tour, a minimum of two weeks in advance. Come learn about the Bastion wall project that the CSO, the Fort Mose Historical Society, is currently working on. Visit the CSO’s website here for more information: http://www.fortmose.org/.

Fort Mose is also looking for volunteers to help in the museum and with providing interpretive programs to our visitors. Please call (904) 823-2232 for more information on volunteering or any of our programs or if you require assistance prior to your visit.

Fort Mose Trail dead ends into Fort Mose picnic area and parking lot.
OR: From Hwy 1 in St. Augustine, drive north past Hwy 16. Look for a bronze statue on the right and a sign for Fort Mose. Turn right on Fort Mose Trail. Fort Mose Trail dead ends into Fort Mose picnic area and parking lot.
