Hernando de Soto Mural

Add to plan Remove from plan
Designed and painted by Bobby Meadows in 2015, it depicts Hernando de Soto and native-Americans from Sarasota who came up and traded at Bayport with the citizens and military.

In 1539 Hernando de Soto’s expedition lands in Tampa Bay and marched through several villages. The first was at the Plain of Guacozo, thought to be on a north-south trail near Dade City in Pasco County. It was at this location, about fifty miles from their campsite on the Little Manatee River and forty miles from Tocobaga, that the Spaniards saw the first native cornfields in Florida.
