We visited the museum with an interest in learning about the town of St. Joseph's that existed only for a few years in the early 1800's. The Florida constitution is covered here also. Very interesting with the limited amount of actual artifacts of the town.

Once again, we were impressed by another of Florida's historical sites and parks. The artifacts and exhibits educated us about Florida's history up to and after creation of their state constitution. The forest ranger was friendly and knowledgeable, and shared stories about Florida that add...More

Interesting place with lots of old Florida artifacts. There is a monument marking the spot where the Florida Constitution was signed in 1838. Lovely park just outside Port St. Joe, FL. right on the beautiful bay.

The exhibits were excellent and presented a good history of the constitutional convention. The site for this Park is beautiful; large trees; and a view out to the bay through the trees.
