Florida To Buy Land In Order To Protect Native American Indian Burial Site

The state of Florida will pay $4,700,000 US to protect Letchworth Mound, the tallest Native American Indian burial site in a mound in the state. The 46 feet tall mound is 1,000 years old. Florida will buy 109.6 acres and will pay a landowner not to develop another 1,281.6 acres surrounding the state park where Letchworth Mound is located.
