Point of Interest Details

The Native American Burial Mound was created by Natives 4,000 years ago. This is sacred ground that is protected by the Native American Grave Protection and Repatriation Act. It is amazing that this has survived to present time as many pioneers that came to Florida were very destructive to structures left behind by Natives. The burial mound was on site when the Sams family arrived. They had a gentleman archeologist examine the mound to see its contents. Realizing the cultural important of the burial mound the Sams family protected the site allowing it to survuve to present day.
