San Marcos de Apalache - St. Marks, Florida
I mentioned in yesterday's post that San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park in St. Marks is on the list of Florida State Parks facing temporary or permanent closure due to state budget issues.
I thought it might be interesting to spend more time exploring this park and detailing why it is of such significance that it should be saved. So beginning tomorrow, I will start a series on this historic site and while its significance renders it beyond question that it should be saved and kept open to the public.
In the meantime, please visit the new San Marcos de Apalache pages at www.exploresouthernhistory.com. Just follow the link and you will see the heading at the top of the page.
Also, please take a few minutes to urge Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to save this and other state parks. You can email him at Charlie.Crist@MyFlorida.com.
