Inscription. The natural limestone that once spanned the Arch Creek served as a crossing place for prehistoric Tequesta Indians, Seminole War soldiers and early pioneers. It was a natural wonder of great beauty and a scenic gathering place from which eventually sprung one of Dade County's first towns. In 1858, early pioneers excavated this mill sluice to divert water to grind coontie for starch production. The South Florida Water Management District has constructed this dam to alter the present water intrusion into our fresh water supply.
