Mission Statement

Mound House combines archaeology, history, and conservation to teach the public about Estero Island, the people that lived here, and how we can protect our natural resources.

Description

Through archaeology and history Mound House reveals 2,000 years of island life through a variety of tours and educational programs. Situated on Estero Bay, the site is accessible by boat and motor traffic and visitors are encouraged to picnic on the park grounds and enjoy the beautiful view. Acquired with funds from Florida Communities Trust in 2000, the Mound House has moved forward on providing high quality educational programs to the public while meeting site development needs. Recently completed projects include the construction of a kayak landing area that connects visitors to the Great Calusa Blueway Kayak Trail in Estero Bay and the initiation of the Walk-In Shell Mound Exhibit project where visitors are given the opportunity to walk inside a Calusa Indian mound. The William H. Case House is currently being restored to its 1921 grandeur and Mound House grounds will be landscaped to add to the historical ambience and provide further opportunities to meet the facility's educational mission.
