Tucked in a leafy glade at the end of a dead-end road, Letchworth-Love Mounds Archaeological State Park preserves one of Florida’s greatest and least known archaeological treasures, Florida’s tallest ceremonial mound.
Fees: $3 per vehicle
Open: 8 AM until sunset daily
Follow the path from the parking area for a walk around the base of the tallest and most complex ceremonial mound in Florida. It dates back to 500 A.D, the Woodland Period, and is 46 feet high. Topped with trees, it’s quite the sight, and there are related mounds scattered through the nearby woods: some intact, some not. Interpretive information provides on-the-spot insight into this sacred site of Florida’s ancient peoples.
