We stumbled upon this park while exploring the Port St. Joe area, not realizing until we read the monument that Florida's constitution was written in this area. The park is very simple, just a large piece of property, lined with very mature trees that lead your eyes to the ocean. It would be a nice place for a picnic or... More

I visited here with my 4 kids. The ranger absolutely made this visit for us. She really took the time to engage with the kids and verbally explained some of the history of the area. Very educational. I'd recommend about 30-45 minutes for a visit.

You can learn a lot about FL by going through this museum. It's small so it doesn't take a lot of time to get through it.

The ranger on duty is very helpful and there are several older books about the constitution and its founders that they... More

This is small so it is easy to appreciate all of it. My husband is a fifth generation Floridian so we like to go to sites of Florida history. The town is out of the way, so if you are there, definitely take the time to see this.
