overview

Description:

First documented during a survey in 1839, unusual earthworks near the Caloosahatchee River were first believed to be fortifications built by Europeans. Archaeological investigations determined that the earthworks are in fact the remains of a canal system dating to about 1,700 years ago, demonstrating that the Indians engineered large irrigation projects. An exhibit and trail interpret the site.
