Welcome to Florida Forts, trails to the past


Florida Forts


Fort Brooke



Florida has many historical forts. It has been stated there have been more than 300 camps, batteries, forts and redoubts in Florida since European settlement began.More than 80 "blockhouses, forts, camps and stockades" were used at one time or another in Florida during the Seminole Wars. Most forts were constructed from earth and/or wood, with occasional incorporation of brick or stone. Many were intended to be used for only a short period, and most have disappeared. In some cases, a series of forts with different names were built on or close to the same place.

If you know of any Forts not listed here, or have information or pictures of a Florida Fort, we'd really like to hear from you.
