About Us

Experience old Florida at Mound House where Estero Island's oldest standing structure sits on an ancient Calusa Indian Mound. Through archaeology and history 2,000 years of island life are revealed in a variety of tours and educational programs. Situated on Estero Bay, the site is accessible by boat and motor traffic and visitors are encouraged to picnic on the park grounds and enjoy the beautiful view.

Mound House staff, interns and volunteers provide extensive on-site educational programs to children and youth such as school-led tours, summer day camps as well as off-site programming in the public schools. Adult educational activities include lectures, special events and kayak tours designed to foster a greater understanding of southwest Florida’s history and ecosystems.
