Indian Shell Mound Park

800px-Indian_Mound_Park_06May2010_06Indian Shell Mound Park, located on the northern shore of Dauphin Island, is maintained and administered by Alabama Marine Resources Division. This eleven acres of subtropical natural wonder represents a botanical treasure-trove found on no other Gulf barrier island. Several plant species occurring here are representatives of families found as far inland as the Appalachian Mountains and from as far south as Yucatan state, Mexico. Many were probably transported here by Indian groups hundreds of years ago for medicinal and culinary purposes.

Prehistoric Indian mounds with group tours and lectures on historic burials, food preparation and use of plants and animals for food and medicine. Indian and French historic lore and legend.
