Old Fort Park (Fort Houston) Page2    

This is another view of the outer ditch of the old fort. As far as is known, this is the only surviving part of Tallahassee's Civil War defenses. The fort was never attacked, thanks to the Confederate victory at Natural Bridge south of Tallahassee on March 6, 1865


This is a view of the southeast corner of the fort, giving a pretty good idea of the state in which the earthwork is preserved


This is a view looking across the interior of the fort from the northwest corner to the southeast corner. Although at the time of the Civil War, the fort was on the southeastern edge of town, today it is in a quiet city park in a residential neighborhood
