Happy New Year everyone. We're back at Fort King conducting excavations to uncover the blacksmith's area. We'll be out there for several weeks if you would like to stop by and see the excavations firsthand.

Thanks Ocala Style Magazine for this great write up. What a GREAT EVENT.

Thanks Ocala Style Magazine for this great write up. What a GREAT EVENT.

When the City of Ocala and the Fort King Heritage Association built the replica of the 1800s outpost four years ago, the first challenge was to educate the community about the history of the site. In December 2015, they held the first reenactment of the skirmish between U.S. soldiers and Seminole Indians. Now in its fourth year, A Fight For Freedom: Attack on Fort King offered an entire weekend of living history fun. Learn more via http://bit.ly/36belAv.

A special thanks to this absolutely incredible, beautiful, kind, compassionate and giving human being. We have been honored to call Kay a volunteer and a friend over the past four years. She gives so much of herself to this community. Kay is the photographer that we love to use here at Fort King. She is always here for us when we need her and she never disappoints.
