 About Orman House Historic State Park

The park overlooks the Apalachicola River.

A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Joshua Hodson

History lives again at the Orman House in historic Apalachicola, Florida. Join Ranger Mike Kinnett, 2008 and 2011 District 1 Interpreter of the Year, as he takes you back to 1838 for a look at the people and events that helped shape our state.

Also visit the Three Soldiers Detail Statue located directly in front of the Orman House. The Three Soldiers Detail Statue is a unique bronze sculpture from the mold of the original Three Servicemen Statue located in Washington, D.C.

The Chapman Gardens, located across from the Orman House, is a great outdoor space to have a picnic, family gathering, or a special event.

The landscaped grounds and large front porch of the Orman House and the Chapman Gardens are available for special occasions and events. Please call the park at (850) 653-1209 for more information.
