Study of the Local Pre-Historic Coastal Dwellers:  The primary reason for this site is to preserve and interpret the mound structures, burial areas and the lifeways of the coastal dwellers who used the area in ancient times. The visitor center/museum contains exhibits displaying artifacts related to the site, and provides a few comparisons with what was occurring in other parts of the world during similar time periods.

The Museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday through Monday. The Museum is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
