A monument was placed on this location in 1936 to commemorate the 1936 Seminole Conference

On February 22, 1936, this pine hammock was the site of a conference attended by about 275 Seminoles and local government officials. Florida New Deal Governor, David W. Sholtz (1933-37), had aided the state's economic recovery from the great depression. Accompanied by members of his cabinet and D. Graham Copeland of the Collier County Board of Commissioners, Sholtz journeyed into the Everglades to discuss with the Seminole leaders what the government could do to assist the Indians in those trying times. A ceremonial welcome was followed by conversations in which Gotch Nagoftee (Jose Billie) and Tush Kee Hemethe (Corey Osceola) spoke for the Seminoles. The Indians appreciated the offer of aid, but fearing removal from the Everglades, gave the Governor this reply, "Pohoam Checklish." -- "Just leave us alone."
