I had read previous reviews and believe some of those writers do not know what a shell midden is. This was an almost round midden surrounding a small park. Nice.

There wasn't really much to see, created by the native americans, it was mostly a grown-over grassy hill with benches, but for those like my husband, still interesting to see and walk into!

We walked through the shell mounds and read ever board in less than 10 minutes. Take bug spray!!! Lots of mosquitos and more bugs than anywhere else on the island.

It was a nice walk. Great for dogs also. Benches are every where for those who need to sit for a while.

We stopped here expecting to see the remains of the shell mounds or at least some artifacts of historical significance. The only thing we saw were some benches around an area and a few local birds. Not worth the time to stop.

While biking around the island we stopped and enjoyed the amazing Live Oak Trees and a short sit on the well positions benches.

Wandering along the shell mound area feeling the ancient history we notice some blue herons over by the bay nearby. One flew then, one more and we watched as 6 or 7 graceful herons lifted off and flew overhead.

This has a most interesting history. I was fortunate to be with a local historian and biologist so I understand the history of the site. More signage would help the casual visitor. The numerous birds as well as the live oaks and the availability of...More

The live oaks are really pretty here. This is a small interesting historical spot. There is a short walking trail.
