Claim this profile

Mound House is a unique archaeological and historical site on Fort Myers Beach located directly on Estero Bay. Estero Island’s oldest standing structure has recently been restored to its 1921 grandeur and is now open as a cultural and environmental learning center. Experience this one of a kind museum that sits atop a 2,000 year old Calusa Indian Shell Mound. The museum contains new exhibits that feature how the layers of shells beneath the earth’s surface revealed information about the Calusa Indians as well as others that settled on the property. A kayak launch allows access to The Great Calusa Blueway paddling trail. Guided Kayak Eco-Tours and other special programs are offered during the year.
