Welcome! This is a great time to visit Fort Mose Historic State Park.

We offer a soothing getaway from the sun, whether indoors in the air-conditioned visitor center or outdoors under our gorgeous shade trees. Learn the story of the first legally sanctioned free African settlement inside the visitors center which offers interactive displays that re-tell the story (closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays).

This time of year is a great time to view the wildlife from the boardwalk which overlooks the marsh or maybe have a picnic lunch at the pavilion.
