Mount Elizabeth Mound


The historic Mount Elizabeth Mound Archeological Site is a prehistoric midden and an archaeological site in Jensen Beach, Florida. This Martin County Historical Site is also known as Racey's Tuckahoe and St. Joseph's Novitiate. Southern Florida is covered with ancient archaeological sites left behind by the first Floridians. Many of these sites are thousands of years old. 4,000 years ago, the Nomadic Tribes inhabited Jensen Beach & built the Mount Elizabeth midden we see today.
