The 2,000-year-old American Indian circle was carved into the limestone bedrock by the now-extinct Tequesta Indians. The circular carving next to the Miami River was discovered in 1998 on the site of a planned luxury high rise. The state and county bought it in 1999 for $26.7-million. The Miami Circle, also known as The Miami River Circle, Brickell Point, or The Miami Circle at Brickell Point Site was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 5, 2002. In 2007 a section of sea wall protecting the ancient Miami Circle collapsed and funding was sought for replacement. Miami Circle was later declared a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009. As of 2010 the sea-wall has been rebuilt and restored.
The archaeologist was employed by the Department of State to monitor construction and make sure no damage occurred to the site.
