While this has lots of historical value, don't expect to see too much as this is a mound which looks like its on the corner of a persons property and that's it. You can go to the park right across the street and picnic nicely.

The tomb is behind a playground. The park itself is well-maintained and the bathrooms are very clean. We had to go a bit further than our GPS said to reach the park. Had we turned around as the GPS said, we would have missed it!

This site is on Beach St. just south of City Hall and Ormond Library. It is a preserved sacred burial ground for Tomoka Indians who lived in this area. Just across from the Halifax River

Its a neat attraction on the side of Beach Street right in the middle of Ormond Beach, lots of legends about this place.

This is a unique mound in that it is a burial mound. The fact that it was saved from the fate most of these landmarks suffered and preserved is a tribute to the community of Ormond Beach.

Very quiet and peaceful the day we visited. Playground for children and very clean Rest Rooms available. The historic sign was interesting and informative.

This pre-Columbian mound is at the corner of Beach Street and Mound Avenue, across from a beautiful park on the Halifax River. The mound is covered with grass, in a grassy park with benches to sit and view the mound. The ancient mound builders left...More

This is a small park that is dedicated to the history of Ormond Beach. Most people that are looking for it drive right by because they are looking at Ambs Park across the street. Also the setting makes it appear to be the neighbors side...More
