A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Warren Poplin

Welcome to Fort Mose Historic State Park!

June is the month that Fort Mose has long been anticipating! First up is the 2nd Annual CSO Golf Tournament Fundraiser on June 6th in support of the Bastion wall project. Visit Fort Mose Historical Society’s website here for more information: http://www.fortmose.org/. Then Fort Mose’s largest event of the year, the Battle of Bloody Mose, is on June 21st and June 22nd. This is the first year that the event will take place over two days because of popular demand. This event was also just awarded the Florida Park Service CSO event of the year. You do not want to miss out on this one! For more information about this event, please visit the “Event” tab.

Fort Mose is also looking for volunteers to help with maintenance of the park grounds as well as with providing interpretive programs to our visitors. Please call (904) 823-2232 for more information on volunteering or any of the above 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.
