Travel back in time to the days of the Civil War when you visit Yellow Bluff Fort Historic State Park. Although an official fort was never constructed on this land, Yellow Bluff served as an important military site throughout the Civil War. Located just north of the St. Johns river, this land was vital for both Confederate and Union troops as it provided easy access to a delivery method for troops and artillery. Yellow Bluff was home to Confederate and Union troops alike during different parts of the war; used for Confederate defenses in 1861 and 1862, and a communications tower for Union forces in 1864. It wasn't until 1950 that the land of Yellow Bluff was donated to be a state park.
