Fantastic website on Florida Native American Tribes

These are the original inhabitants of the area that is now Florida. There are two federally recognized Indian tribes in Florida today: Miccosukee Tribe of Indians and Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The Bulow Woods Trail runs a 6.8-mile path shaded by majestic oaks. Keep an eye out for white-tailed deer, barred owls and other native wildlife. The trail ends at Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park, where the plantation was burned down by Seminole Indians in 1836 during the Second Seminole War. The buildings were made of coquina and included the largest sugar mill in Florida. The park has an outdoor museum to preserve the ruins and artifacts found at the site.
