Fort Caroline Information

Timucuan Fort Caroline National Memorial honors the short-lived French presence in 16th century Florida. Enjoy hiking paths and historical re-enactments.

At the settlement of La Caroline, French settlers struggled for survival in a new world. Many sought religious freedom in a new land, while others were soldiers or tradesman starting a new life. The climactic battles fought here between the French and Spanish marked the first time that European nations fought for control of lands in what is now the United States.
