Forest Capital Museum State Park

The museum and the park's 1863 cracker homestead interpret the area's natural and cultural history. The museum interprets the history of forestry in North Florida and offers a fundamental understanding of the evolution and ecology of the forest. The museum showcases early turpentine production with a model still and antique tools of the trade. Many of the products that are produced from the long leaf pine tree are displayed along with rare old photographs of early logging operations. The exhibits are educational and entertaining. Young and old will enjoy the still wildlife exhibits and Terrie the talking tree, with her message about the importance of trees in our environment. The park is beautifully landscaped with long leaf pines, beds of cootie ferns, a manicured lawn and a variety of native plants and trees. Visitors may also enjoy the park's pavilions, playground and the visitors’ center. It's all “tree-rific.”
