  • The mound house is worth an hour or so of your time if you like local history. This museum is small but worth our hour of time. It focuses on the Callusa natives of the area as well as early settlers.

  • I love visiting well organized historic places, and it is. Also the staff was very knowledgeable and willingly answered questions.
  • Educational and historic site on Fort Myers Beach. Friendly staff and well maintained facility.
  • My husband and I toured Mound House 8/25/15 approximately 11am. It is a very beautiful place with an equally interesting story. However, the tour was marred for us when the tour guide (Harriet???) described a beautiful plant that is poisonous (coontie plant?), and how some sort of bread was made from it. She further stated that the natives probably tried it on slaves and offered me (my husband and I were the only African Americans in attendance) with a grin on her face. POOR TASTE!!!!
  • It's a great learning experience for all.😎
  • Great location, interesting history
