Mound House Underground Exhibit Progress

Good news! Well, good and bad news. Good news - the Underground Exhibit at the Mound House site, "Stories Beneath Our Feet" is moving forward in the right direction. As of today, December 20th, work is beginning on constuction of the mural wall. This is one step closer to completion! Once the wall is up, it will provide the foundation for the custom 44' long Calusa Indian mural. The mural is, as we speak, being worked on and anticipated to go up sometime in February.

Now for the bad news - the Underground Exhibit will need to be closed during construction of this wall. So that means we will not be offering any tours of the exhibit until the New Year. During this time, however, the Mound House grounds will still be open as usual - sun up to sun down, seven days a week.

This is a great step in the right direction, and anyone who has been in the underground exhibit knows how great of a leap this really is! We are very excited for the future!

No tours will be offered of the Underground Exhibit until January.
