1. Olive Mill Marker
Inscription. This mill was used in the early days of California. Olives were placed in the large vessel and crushed by the solid granite wheels, weighing about 12,000 lbs. The crushed olives were pushed into burlap sacks that were placed over the gate. The oily juice was pressed from the sacks leaving pulp and seeds. The olive oil was separated and further refined.
