Stories Beneath Our Feet

The Stories Beneath Our Feet exhibit was created by removing and excavating a 1950s in-ground swimming pool. The pool cavity has been transformed into a room within the shell mound where visitors have the opportunity to view the site’s 2,000 year history through the layers in the mound that constitute the room walls!
