As long as humans have existed in the Americas, people have chosen to live in this Gulf Coast paradise destined
to become known as Venice. Even during the last ice age, people thrived on the shores of this bountiful land. Traces of
settlements from over 10,000 years ago are found as far as 100 miles offshore. Due to substantially lower sea levels at
that time, the Florida peninsula was twice as wide as it is today. In an environment of vast savannas, grassland, and
open prairies, the ancient Paleo people hunted long extinct animals including the mammoth, mastodon, cave bear, horse,
bison, and even camel. As a result, Venice and surrounding areas are rich in history and important archaeological sites.
