Boca Raton Historic Photographs: ANCIENT BOCA RATON!

Well another year and now a new decade… so… what better way to start than to look to the past and wonder about the future. It’s time for this month’s historic photographs and as promised it’s another whopper of a secret: ANCIENT BOCA RATON! Hard to believe about Boca in ancient times… but there was such a time and place…

Yes! This mound is in Boca Raton and it is said to be 1000 to 2000 years old!

It is said that the Barnhill Mound and near by village was occupied by the Tequesta, the Jeagas and the Ais tribes centuries ago. The photograph above shows a depiction of the village flanked by Native Americans. Africa-USA owners also tried to make a tourist attraction of the area but tourist traffic dwindelled with the construction of I-95. Sadly in the 1980’s it was sold to construct what is now the Boca Marina Yacht Club development. Such a site should have been set aside like the Miami Circle, but I guess at the time progress and development won out.
