Historic Spanish Point

Over four thousand years ago, people lived at what is now Historic Spanish Point. Here these early Floridians fished and hunted, made tools from shell, bone and wood, mended their fishing nets, cooked their food and buried their dead. At Historic Spanish Point you will see a burial mound and two middens or shell mounds, which contain the evidence of the lives of these early people.

The middens were created from shells, bones and other day-to-day accumulations. The unique archeological exhibition, “A Window to the Past” located inside the midden, presents what archaeologists have discovered about these early inhabitants.
