A bit of rich history was unearthed when the Smithsonian discovered nearly 100 members of a 17th century Calusa Tribe. Extremely resourceful and technologically advanced, this tribe constructed artificial islands and canals. Their population dwindled after succumbing to European diseases and disbanded in the early 18th century. Some survivors joined the Seminole Tribe while others went to Cuba.

Exhibits at the CHARLOTTE COUNTY HISTORICAL CENTER display artifacts and provide a historical time-line dating back thousands of years ago. Charlotte County’s first pioneer settlement is on display at Bayshore Live Oak Park. Web site
