Fort Mose Historic State Park
Welcome to Fort Mose Historic State Park
Fort Mose Historic State Park is a 40-acre waterfront historic site.
The park offers picnic areas, observation and birding boardwalk, kayak launch boardwalk, a visitor center and museum.
Many educational opportunities are available, particularly for visitors interested in history or wildlife viewing. Enter the year 1738 on the self-guided Flight to Freedom Trail and discover how men, women and children risked their lives to secure freedom for themselves and their families. The trail is a lush woodland path with interpretive panels.
Those inclined toward history will enjoy the interactive museum that tells the complete story of the first legally sanctioned free African settlement in what would become the United States. Although there are no remains of the earth and wooden structures, visitors can view the land where the settlement once stood.
Visitors interested in birding will enjoy ample viewing opportunities for species such as the great blue heron, bald eagle and white ibis.
