Construction of Fort Clinch began in 1847, and today it is considered one of the best preserved 19th century forts in the nation. Sited on the northern tip of Amelia Island, this fort provided protection for the deep-water port of Fernandina. IVisitor center exhibits tell the fort’s history, and Fort Clinch park staff and volunteers in Civil War uniforms provide living history programming on a daily basis. Larger reenactments occur on the first full weekend of each month during the “First Weekend Union Garrisons”, and also during “Confederate Garrison” events.
