The mound and the house are actually two different things. The mound refers to a Calusa Indian shell mound and the house is the oldest standing building in Fort Myers Beach, which happens to sit atop the shell mound. Check the website for times of tours. We went on a Saturday around noon so we were able to get a tour. The tours are free. The tour guide was very informative but sometimes a little scattered and long winded. They tell you about the history of the island and the Calusa Indians who formed the mound. There are many different types of Florida plants to view. The only thing you really need a guide for (other then the information) is to view the under ground room to see a cross section of the actual shell mound and view a video about it. The house is soon to be open to the public but is closed for renovations.
