Native Americans stopped here in the Archaic period

Under the land where you’re standing are archaeological artifacts from the Archaic period, when Native Americans roamed through here in the Middle to Late Archaic period, between 4,000 and 7,000 years ago.

Direction from stop 1 to stop 2

Walk back through the parking lot to the far end of the semi-circular drive and, standing at the southwest corner of the mansion, look north towards the large oak trees and the creek.
