Crystal River State Archaeological Site

[Visitors Center]

Crystal River

This six-mound complex, built by the cultural group called pre-Columbian mound builders, is considered one of the longest continuously occupied sites in Florida. For 1,600 years these 14 acres were an imposing prehistoric ceremonial center.

Native Americans traveled great distances to the complex to bury their dead with ceremony and to participate in trade activities. It is estimated that 7,500 Indians might have visited the complex annually. This site is a National Historic Landmark.

Crystal River State Archaeological Site is located on Museum Point in Crystal River.
