overview

Description:

The site of the Hernando de Soto Winter Encampment is located at the B. Calvin Jones Center, home to the offices of the Florida Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Archaeological Research. Archaeological investigations confirm that the Hernando de Soto expedition camped at this location during its first winter in North America in 1539-1540. It was originally the location of Anhaica, the principal village of the Apalachee. There are no other confirmed de Soto expedition sites in the Southeastern U.S. An interpretive kiosk, state historic marker, and exhibit inside the center explain the site's history and archaeological investigations.
