This is the Mound House on Estero Island. I thought it would be something pretty cool, but when I got there the visuals were pretty dull. However, the history is kind of cool, even if there isn't much to look at. This location hosted the first house on Estero Island and it sits on an old Calusa mound. For all who are unfamiliar with the Calusa people - they were the originally inhabitants of Florida. They've found evidence of villages and mounds buildings dating back to 4000 BCE. The mounds on which this house sits on was started approximately 100 BCE. It is thought that the Calusas abandoned the Estero Island Mound approximately 700 CE. In 1906 the first Europeans settled here building a small tudor cottage. In 1909 a brick bungalow was added to the collage and in 1921 it was expanded. The city is currently working to bring the house back to its 1921 glory. In the meantime, its a pretty dull place to visit.
