Long Description:
Samuel Butts collected artifacts of prehistoric humans and bones of prehistoric animals at this site for 20 years. He found spear joints, bone tools and pottery fragments left by the Timucuan Indians. One of his larger finds was skeletal material from a mastodon that roamed the area during the Ice Age. The park was dedicated to Mr. Butts in 2004. He requested that the park be dedicated to motivate youth to study the environment and the area's prehistory, natural history and cultural history. Today, the park includes a lake and is a habitat and santuary for aquatic life and migratory waterfowl.
