FORT GEORGE STATE CULTURAL SITE

Moss-draped laurel and live oaks provide a lush canopy for visitors to Fort George Island, home to another of the units in the Talbot Islands GEOpark complex. The island has been occupied continuously by man for over 5,000 years, and traces remain of each occupation period.

Several plant species occur far beyond their normal range on the island. Mount Cornelia, at 65 feet, is the highest point along the Atlantic coast south of Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Bicycling or hiking along the island's roads and trails, one can hear the echoes of the island's history.




Fort George Island State Cultural Site lies approximately 16 miles east of downtown Jacksonville on S.R. A1A, or three miles south of Little Talbot Island State Park.
