“Terrific historical must stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

So much to see, the Temple Mound, the Museum, the schoolhouse and post office. All fun and very interesting artifacts. They are redoing the entrance on 98, and it should be something to see. The museum and gift shop have so much, the real Native American story of NW Florida.
You have to stop when you are in town, low entrance price and worth every penny.

“Small but very intriguing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Went here to get school credit for my son missing school ( never had to do that ridiculous stuff when i was a kid, my parents just said we wouldn't be there and that was that... Pardon me while I vent lol). Anyways the attraction was interesting, initially thought it was a burial mound and found out it was not at all. The cultural center had a lot of displays and information on native American culture and was the best part of it all. You have access to 4 different historical museums including a schoolhouse, civil war museum and post office, all for one price.

“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is over the bridge in the old town. It is a nice little something to do (especially with the kids) when you have had enough sun for a few hours.
