Maddox Park/Shipyard Cove

Shipyard Cove was named for the shipyard where sailing vessels were repaired during the heyday of the old city of St. Joseph, 1838 - 1841. This 3.2 acre waterfront park includes the house that was home to Captain Fred and Miss Zola Maddox, pioneer residents of Port St. Joe and Gulf County, for more than 60 years. Today the house is headquarters for the local Chamber of Commerce. The park, a lovely, quiet place to watch the sun setting over the bay, contains wetlands, a walking trail, park benches, picnic tables, and restrooms.
