At the top of this hill 3 to 5000 years ago, Prehistoric men had a rock quarry where they made a variety of stone tools.
Projectiles, knives, and scrapers were among the tools made by these people who camped at the foot of the hill. These nomads hunted dear and other game, collected plant foods, and fished in the river here. They had spears and spear throwers for hunting and fishing, and motors and pestles for grinding roots and berries. Archaeologists have not yet determined when this industry shut down.
