Tierra Verde Mound

A large Indian burial mound was built near this spot about 1500 A.D. It was used for some years by the inhabitants of a nearby Safety Harbor culture village, Indians who were among the ancestors of the later Tocobaga tribe. Excavation in 1961 by State agencies added to our knowledge of these people.
