  • Full of the areas history. Many locally found artifacts. Also the site of an ancient Indian burial mound.  more »
  • A small museum full of history of FWB. A $5 fee covers the museum and other buildings on the premises. Lots of artifacts from the Native Americans. It is worth the small fee to see everything offered.  more »
  • The museum is small but interesting. Explains a lot of the history of FWB and Okaloosa Island. The park/mound next to it is nice but also small. It has changed over the years due to hurricanes. It is ...  more »

  • Not what you expect, was super confused cause we thought we were going to look at the huge mound with a building but it's closed off and you can't get to it even though a sign says you can at a certain time. The coolest part was the schoolhouse but couldn't stay very long in the tents out back of the post office etc cause no a/c so mom and I just took pics quick of the big info murals to read later lol Not quite worth it but still kind of cool I guess
  • Few places like this still around. And Im not talking about cultural representation of Native Americans - these have been seldom almost rare to come by before The Revolution lets be honest here. So its extremely special in that regard but more to that - when I strolled on the property itself it felt as though I was in a rural area geographically. Not the case. Just ajacent to the mound is a busy thruway. Not a highway of course, but constant flow of local traffic. A natural sound barrier is one thing but the Carmelia flower bushes a whole other thing too. Beautiful. The land is clean and seems even the homeless population respects the grounds. Wonder how heavily piliced it is at night. The signage throughout was educational but terse with presentation. Nice treat. public landmark info boards need to consider their designs no less worthy of creativity than any major enterprise. These guys clearly had their pedestrian readers in mind. Special spot. Heard of it while studying anthro in school. Cool to see in person.
  • Nice, interesting place.
  • It's ok for a rain day.
  • My son and I enjoyed this. Not very big but housed some nice pieces.
