The closest area of interest is right here at the RV park. We are located directly on the remains of an ancient Timucua Indian mound or midden. Midden means dumping ground in Timucuan.
The mound was removed by the county way back when the roadbeds meant more than preserving the past. This particular midden was called Hotel Mound. Someone long ago built a hotel on top of the mound, but after a short time it burned down, hence the name Hotel Mound. This mound was a dumping ground for all of the things the Indians discarded such as clams, conch and oyster shells. The one thing we still find in abundance at low tide on our banks are the discarded shards and larger pieces of their pottery.
Can you find the pottery pieces in the shoreline photos below?
Nearby Florida Attraction
Within walking distance is the ‘Seminole Rest’ – a protected trail that offers a beautiful walk back in time of the Indians and the settlers that lived and ultimately saved this gem of the past. You may read more about this Florida attraction on their website. So come and enjoy your new home on the Inter-coastal Waterway.
