Historic and Archaeological Sites

The Colonial record for Florida began when Juan Ponce de León landed in Florida in 1513. Since that time, Florida’s rich and diverse cultural and historic landscape has become unlike anywhere else in the world.  From living history experiences with re-enacted Colonial life, such as Mission San Luis, or battles, such as the Dade Massacre, there are so many opportunities today to experience Florida’s storied past first hand.

Historic and archaeological sites and museums are unique Florida experiences where you can visit the past, such as on the site of the oldest school house in St. Augustine or the historic Ybor City Historic District.  Experience the best of Florida’s history and prehistory by visiting the Fort Walton Temple Mound and Museum in Fort Walton Beach or Fort Jefferson west of Key West. History can be found throughout Florida from coast to coast and every place in between. All you must do to find it is explore
