National Seashell Day

Walking Tour of the Mound House!

The Mound House at Fort Myers Beach, where thousands of years ago the Calusa Indians lived, is hosting a special walking tour for National Seashell Day. On the nearly three acres of landscaped grounds on Estero Bay is an underground exhibit of a partially excavated shell mound, from which archaeologists have gleaned facts about the lives of these early inhabitants. Since the Calusa no longer exist, the masks, weapons, tools and art of the Calusa are left to tell the story of their lives. Also on the grounds is the oldest structure on Fort Myers Beach, which has been restored to its 1920s heyday and now contains those artifacts.
