I didn't expect to see anything like this along the coast but it is a good historic site to see while in the area.

The Indian Mound and artifacts were nice to see but what was most interesting for me was the old one-room school house and the civil war room. The school house with all the period furnishings and memorabilia is a local treasure. And, how the local area was involved in the civil war was interesting.

If you are interested in Native American artifacts, this place is a little gem. It looks small, but there is little fluff and a lot of artifacts in each case.

They are small, one room museums, a post office, a civil war shed, and a schoolhouse. With that said, I think they are just dandy. I... More

Has a 2 room museum and the smallest post office and a school house on property beside the mounds. Just so you know after you climb up to the mound all you see is cutouts of Indians and Indian children. Nothing inside to see. Its just knowing that your on top of several Indians that is significant. The school house,... More

We were impressed by the native culture in this area of the country. The museum is very small but the attendant was very informative. We enjoyed this place.

We really enjoyed the museum about local history of the Fort Walton Beach area. The Indian mound and exhibit were under renovation. They also had an old school house, an old post office and a civil war exhibit.
