Fort Mose is just north of the tourist district, but seems to be many miles and many centuries away. A small but very well-done museum welcomes visitors to explore the grounds. Alas, the passage of time has washed away the fort itself, but excellent interpretive displays and a little imagination can combine to conjure up the first settlement of free black people in the southern region. Be warned, it is very hot and buggy in the warmer weather. A visit in winter or early spring is ideal, but it is worth the visit at any time. Last Saturday of each month hosts a neat living history program, where staff and volunteers help bring the past to life.
