“Interesting walk back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Small museum with movie and a nice docent who gave us a short tour inside. Beautiful views of the river. Walk around and walk to the top of the shell mound for more feel of the Calusa people who lived here.

“Nice Afternoon Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

A nice afternoon trip for a little history lesson! Bring water and some snacks and enjoy the picnic tables at the far end by the temple mound.

“Excellent short walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

As others have said before, this is a hidden gem. Just a bit over a mile walk with interesting things to see. Being inside a midden is an unusual opportunity which shouldn't be missed if you are in the area.

If you have the time take in this site, it is well worth the hour. It is very walkable, the visitors center has many artifacts and a great history to share.

“Serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This was a nice and beautiful area to visit. It had an interesting museum of artifacts and history, and the walkways that surrounded the grounds and Indian burial mounds were very pretty with lots of large and beautiful oak trees with spanish moss, and a tall staircase that led to a platform at the top of a mound which had nice views of the surrounding coastal landscape.
