General Note

  • Hontoon Island was first inhabited by ancestors of the Timucua Indians. Freshwater snails from the St. Johns River were their primary food source. Over centuries, large shell mounds emerged. Archaeologists have in recent discovered large carved wooden animal figurines. Later the island served as a homestead, a cattle ranch, and a commercial fishing center. In 1967, the 1650-acre island became a state park.
