In 1933 Anthropologist M.W. Stirling from Yale researched the six burial mounds in this area and in one found 96 skeletons arranged in a circle. Along with his research he found some interesting artifacts. Information was obtained from archeological reports Br 90-95 in Tallahassee, Mounds are not extant.
The actual mounds have long disappeared but once a great race of Native Americans burled their dead in this area. It was considered very sacred ground. Nowdays there is a small public park with a Gazebo you can sit and look upon the Banana River and meditate on the ancient people's that once lived in this area.

Nice history here. I was out night-caching to end my vaction and thought a virtual OC would be perfect. I didn't even look for the GC at this location as it has a few DNFs and looking by flashlight would have probably been too noticable. My story:
I parked the cachemobile and walked up towards the water's edge ... and something hissed at me! It was loud and somewhat startling. Silly cacher, that's likely a dolphin or manatee taking a puff. I didn't see them out there but I heard them a lot. A great blue heron was standing just at the end of the park and flew off with a surprising amount of noise. I love startling those guys at night but hate when they startle me! The fish were jumping and something "ray-like" swam by illuminated (or maybe attracted to?) my flashlight beam. It was a very cool experience. I stayed too long and my wife got angry with me (although it might have been because she was jealous).
Many thanks for brining me here and for the OC.V!
