Indians lived at the mouth of the Miami River (200 yards southwest of this spot) for more than 15 centuries before White men came. The principal town of the Tequesta Indians, including six mounds used for dwelling, burial, and religious rites, was discovered here by the Spaniards. They built in it the earliest White settlement in S. E. Florida, a fort and Jesuit mission, in 1567. When the British obtained Florida in 1763, most of the Tequesta departed with the Spaniards to Havana and thereafter vanished as a tribe.
