The Mound House

March 30, 2016
FL Guide

Experience old Florida at Mound House where Estero Island's oldest standing structure sits on an ancient Calusa Indian Mound. Through archaeology and history, 2,000 years of island life are revealed in a variety of tours and educational programs. Situated on Estero Bay, the site is accessible by boat and motor traffic and visitors are encouraged to picnic on the park grounds and enjoy the beautiful view.

Acquired with funds from Florida Communities Trust in 2000, the Mound House has moved forward on providing high quality educational programs to the public while meeting site development needs. Recently completed projects include the construction of a kayak landing area that connects visitors to the Great Calusa Blueway Kayak Trail in Estero Bay and the initiation of the Walk-In Shell Mound Exhibit project where visitors will have the opportunity to walk inside a Calusa Indian mound.

The William H. Case House is currently being restored to its 1921 grandeur and Mound House grounds will be landscaped to add to the historical ambience and provide further opportunities to meet the facility's educational mission.

The Mound House is located at 451 Connecticut Street, Fort Myers Beach, FL.
