Learn more about the history of Florida and learn the story of Natural Bridge. History buffs will like this site. School age children studying Florida's history will also enjoy the nature trails and the hikes and the experience of learning something more about Florida.

Other than the monument, there was little to see. As we are familiar with earthworks and breastworks, we knew where to locate them. There are, unfortunately, no signs, to educate people.
