Inscription.  A large Indian burial mound was built near this spot about 1500 A.D. It was used for some years by the inhabitants of a nearby Safety Harbor culture village, Indians who were among the ancestors of the later Tocobaga tribe. Excavation in 1961 by State agencies added to our knowledge of these people.
 
Erected 1962 by Florida Board of Parks and Historic Memorials. (Marker Number F-90.)
