Weedon Island Mangrove Tunnel

Besides great kayaking, Weedon Island is also reknowned for the first discovery/classification of the Weeden Island Culture, a culture in existence about 1,700 to 1,000 years ago in the Northern Florida/Georgia area and responsible for 'construction of some of the earliest dated flat-topped platform (or temple) mounds' in North America. The name 'Weedon/Weeden' got misspelled somewhere along the way. Ironically, Weedon Island is at the very outer reaches of Weeden Island culture.
