Drs. DePratter and ThompsonBringing Fort San Marcos to life

The Santa Elena History Center will expand its main exhibit with a new diorama!

Currently in the planning stage, the 3-D Scaled Model of Fort San Marcos will be prominently displayed in the Main Exhibit “Santa Elena: America’s Untold Story” at the Santa Elena History Center.

With guidance from personal accounts and drawings of the Fort in the 16th century archives, and with new data from archaeologists Dr. Chester DePratter and Dr. Victor Thompson, a detailed model of the two-story fort prefabricated in St. Augustine and built at Santa Elena will be an intriguing addition to this emerging story and exhibit!
