Nice little bit of history! Looks like they are saving up and have plans for a nice new visitor center which will totally make it 5 stars! The current one is just really small and old.. wouldn't have gone in alone.

Nice and Worth stop to explore the trail around the battlefield park. While there We found online some ghost stories about this place and my kids enjoyed the nice hike . It got a little spooky with all the silence around and only the wind and rain approaching.

This is a great stop off I-10, there's a visitor center with lots of information on this important Civil War Battle, which was Florida's largest battle. Every February there's a historical battle reenactment here.
