Mission San Luis de Apalachee is a reconstruction of a 17th century Spanish Mission right in the middle of Tallahassee, Florida. Sightseer Shannon said: I worked as an archaeological tech out there a few years ago. The thing that looks like a giant anthill is actually a cone-shaped structure called the Council House. It would have been the traditional Apalachee meeting place where village business would be conducted and visitor would sleep. The smaller cone is the Chief’s House, but, as I understand, it was torn down not too long ago.
