Historical Interest

Site of an early pioneer settlement and cemetery along the banks of the St. Lucie River. First settled in 1891, Spruce Bluff consisted of a community of several families with a school, post office and sawmill.

A prehistoric Indian mound is located on the southern end of the preserve.
A planned and platted community, over 60 homes were proposed to be built on the site prior to public ownership.

Note: Also accessible by canoe from the North Fork of the St. Lucie River.
