Pass of the Salamatoto River Marker Picolata FL

This marker is located in St Johns County on SR 13 & SR 208 at Picolata Road.

The text on the marker reads as :

" Here where the St. Johns River narrows, was a natural crossing used by Indians, and later by the Spaniards, in pushing west. A Spanish fort, built in 1700, protected the crossing and trail that led to Apalache, near Tallahassee. From 1836 to 1870, a stage line, connecting with river steamers, ran from this point to St. Augustine."
