Historic Smallwood Store

360 Mamie St., Chokoloskee, FL 34138

Historic building filled with artifacts from the Calusa Indian period through turn-of-the-century pioneer settlement era. Florida prints and books.  On the western edge of the Everglades and deep in the heart of the 10,000 Islands, Chokoloskee Island has been called one of Florida's last frontiers. Here at Historic Smallwood Store you will learn the story of the pioneers and settlers who tamed this vast wilderness. Ted Smallwood's Store was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. It remained open and active until 1982. When the doors were shut, 90% of the original goods remained in the store. In 1989 Ted's granddaughter reopened the store as a museum, and today it serves as a time capsule of Florida pioneer history. The center section of the building remains as Ted would have known it..  Come take a walk back in time. Experience the unique history of the 10,000 Islands.  Site of the death of Ed Watson, subject of Peter Mathiessen's best sellers Killing Mr. Watson and Shadow Country.
