Fort Clarke
Near this site was located Fort Clarke, originally a U.S. Army Post during the Seminole War, and afterwards a settlement. The name is preserved in nearby Fort Clark Church. At this site crossed the early settlement and military road connecting the old county seats at Newnansville (near present-day Alachua) and Spring Grove with Micanopy. Fort Clarke was named for a U.S. Army officer.
