The Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park offers visitors a beach area, saltwater fishing, shaded picnic areas, concessions and more. Construction on the fort began in 1845 and continued slowly into the 1850’s. Progress was often yielded due to shortages of materials and manpower, bouts with yellow fever and hurricanes. Guided tours are available of the Fort, named after President Zachary Taylor, who died in office in 1850.
