Fort Cooper Historic State Park
Inverness, Citrus County 352.726.0315

Named for Major Mark Cooper, the fort was built during the Second Seminole War. It saw action in 1836 with the First Georgia Battalion of Volunteers, and served as an observation post and stopover until the war’s end. Part of the palisade wall has been reconstructed, and a battle reenactment is staged each April during Fort Cooper Days.
