Inscription
This point of land at the junction of the St. Sebastian River and the Indian River was once settled by aboriginal people, the Ais. Pottery shards and ancient shells can still be found along the shore.

In 1889, L.C. Moore built the Ercildoune Hotel on the hill. President Grover Cleveland stayed there while hunting and fishing with Frank Forster and Paul Kroegel and his guides.

Across U.S. #1 is the public road, Dixie Highway, established on April 4, 1910. This led to the old wooden bridge, built in 1909, replacing an earlier ferry. The Ashley Gang was killed on the south end of this bridge in 1924.
