EXPERIENCE FORT MOSE: COLONIAL CHILDREN STORY TIME AND CRAFTS
Fort Mose Historic State Park

Date: September 27, 2014, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Description:

The event is possible through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council.

Volunteers will be onsite in period dress offering visitors a fascinating glimpse into the past. Each living history program throughout the year will offer visitors a chance to discover a different topic. This day brings the Fort Mose experience alive for children. Children will gather around as a resident of Fort Mose tells them stories of what it was like to be an African child growing up in 1738 at Fort Mose and in Saint Augustine. They can also make themselves a leather beaded necklace or bracelet, an ornament from tin and a colonial tricorn hat.  For the adventurous souls thinking of a military career, there is chance to learn about flint lock muskets and drill along with regular soldiers and militiamen.

Participation Requirements

Fees: Regular park entry fees apply

Contact: Contact park for more information.

Directions: From St. Augustine: From downtown St. Augustine, drive north on A1A. At the carousel (you read it correctly), continue straight north on San Marco. (A1A turns right towards Vilano Beach. Don't go that way.) San Marco merges with Hwy 1. Shortly after the merge, 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.
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.

From Jacksonville: Drive south on Hwy 1. Turn left on Fort Mose Trail. (If you pass Hwy 16 you've missed Fort Mose Trail.) Fort Mose Trail dead ends into Fort Mose picnic area and parking lot.
