During the sixteenth century, France was determined to expand its empire. Spain, the world’s leading power, already had a foothold in the Americas, and France wanted a share of the riches the Spanish were gaining through trade and plunder. France’s first attempt to stake a permanent claim in North America was at La Caroline, a settlement near the mouth of the St. Johns River in Florida. At first, the settlement was to be a commercial venture, but religious conflict in France broadened the goals. The growing persecution of French Protestants (Huguenots) led their most powerful member, Admiral Gaspard de Coligny, to make a proposal to the crown: the colony could also be a refuge for Huguenots. An exploratory expedition, commanded by Jean Ribault, left France in February 1562. On this voyage, he erected a monument at the River of May (now known as the St. Johns River). Permanent settlement of 200 soldiers and artisans began in 1564, led by Rene de Goulaine de Laudonniere, who had accompanied Ribault on the previous expedition. With help from the Timucua Indians, the colonists began building a village and fort on the river’s south bank, naming the area La Caroline after their king, Charles IX. Today, visitors find stories of exploration, survival, religious disputes, and first contact between American Indians and Europeans. A short walk from the park’s visitor center is recreation of the fort (the original has never been precisely located) situated next to the St. Johns River. Enjoy the serenity of hiking nature trails through native habitats. Admission is free.

A historic rebuilding of the fort settled by French colonists in 1564 in Jacksonville. In 1565, the French colony was raided and destroyed by the Spanish. The replica depicts how the original Fort Caroline would have looked complete with cannons and flags. The top levels offer a beautiful view of the mouth of the St. Johns River. There is a 1.3-mile nature trail winding through maritime and hardwood hammock. This historical landmark is under the care of the National Parks Service.
