Did you know?
Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, or Fort Mose, was the destination of the original Underground Railroad, running south. It was home to the first legally sanctioned free Black community in North America!

As you step onto the Freedom Trail, you enter the year 1738. You’re drawn into a dangerous world where freedom seekers flee from enslavement on English plantations, hoping to live as free men, women, and children at Fort Mose.

The Flight to Freedom event is open to the general public at no cost. Donations and Memberships are gratefully accepted.

Please visit www.fortmose.org often for event updates.

Flight to Freedom is supported in part by a Visitor Experience grant from the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council and by a State of the Arts Grant made possible by the St. Johns Cultural Council, with invaluable assistance from Castillo de San Marcos and St. Augustine Garrison.
