Image of the low brush-covered mound.
The low brush-covered mound is a oyster shell midden that rises six feet above the flat coastal marsh at the east end of Dollar Bay, a small secondary bay located along the shore of Galveston Bay directly across from the south end of Bolivar Peninsula. The midden probably formed on a beach ridge remnant chosen for a campsite by native peoples due to its slight elevation. 1956 photo by William B. Neyland, TARL Archives.
