A Short Lived Fort Named Christmas

I recently visited Ft. Christmas, in the very small town of Christmas, on the outskirts of my area in east Orange county.

The county describes it this way: The park includes a replica of a fort built in 1837 during the Second Seminole Indian War; a traditional Florida “Cracker” house and eight pioneer homes; a schoolhouse and lunchroom; a sugar cane mill and other historical farming equipment.

It was completely empty on a Saturday morning, my tax dollars at work – wink wink. That being said, the site seems to get a lot of young school-aged vistors based on the bus parking area, which I’m sure is a treat. Here are my photos from the visit.
