History lecture series continues

The City of Port Orange's next history lecture is scheduled for 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, Adult Activity Center Annex, 3738 Halifax Drive.

The lecture will cover the Old King's Road and the historic Spruce Creek Mound.

An Indian named "Gray Eyes" cut the Old King's Road from the wilderness to connect St. Augustine with Dr. Andrew Turnbull's New Smyrna Colony. The road runs through Port Orange in two locations and dates to the early 1760s. Many of the roads people travel on today were actually part of the Old King's Road.

Prehistoric people of the area built the earthen Spruce Creek Mound on a 40-foot bluff overlooking the creek. The mound rises another 40 feet into the air. Timucuan Indians used the mound as the epicenter of their ceremonies and activities. The mound and complex were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
