Although not originally Spanish, nor a fort, this circa 1718 building is believed to be the oldest structure still standing in the Mississippi Valley. The adjacent museum houses Native American, colonial and 19th-century artifacts as well as historic images and computer-based exhibits. The grounds and a cemetery overlook Krebs Lake. Note: The museum reopened in 2016, but the property is still undergoing renovations from 2005 hurricane damage; phone ahead for updated information. Picnicking is permitted.
