Florida Living History, Inc. (FLH) volunteers, in partnership with Fort Mose Historic State Park and the Fort Mose Historical Society, will present an 18th-century, historical interpretation focusing on harvest-time and foodways in colonial Spanish Florida at Fort Mose – Florida’s “Fortress of Freedom”. FLH volunteers will illustrate the food and culinary traditions of 18th-century St. Augustine and Fort Mose. Children’s activities will include tricorn-hat-making, cornhusk-doll-making, “militia” drill, leather-working, and more! Fort Mose Historic State Park is the site of the first, legally sanctioned free black settlement in the continental U.S., established in 1738.
