At the intersection of Old Fort Drive and Santa Rosa Drive in Tallahassee
One of Tallahassee's best kept secrets is Fort Houston. This well-preserved Civil War fortification is nestled into a residential neighborhood southeast of the Capitol in a park aptly named as Fort Park (a part of the rambling Myers Park system). The park is at the intersection of Santa Rosa Drive and Old Fort Park Drive.
The historical marker at the northwest corner of Fort Park says that this fort was constructed by the citizens of Tallahassee when the city was threatened by the U.S. campaign that ended in the Battle of Natural Bridge on March 6, 1865 some 10 miles to the south. Known as Fort Houston because it was constructed on the E.A. Houston Plantation, this fortification like many in Florida never saw any action.
This is a city park and there is no admission fee.
