Letchworth-Love Mounds Archaeological State Park
Letchworth-Love Mounds Archaeological State Park features Florida's tallest ancient mound, reaching a height of 46.
Backstory and Context
By 900 A.D., as the influence of Mississippi culture spread into the region, sites like Letchworth-Love were replaced by more elaborate sites such as nearby Lake Jackson. The Apalachee occupied the area when Spanish missionaries and explorers frequented the area and eventually gave way to the Creeks and Seminoles. The Battle of Miccosukee was fought close by during the First Seminole War.
