Inscription.  Native Americans grew corn (maize) for a food source. Planted in hills, not rows, the cobs were square, not rounded. They had two rows of corn on each flat surface. Planted when the dogwood bloomed they dropped a fish in each hole with four grains-one for the jay, one for the crow one to rot and one to grow. Maize was ground into flour by hand in rock mills such as this one here on Roaring Run, located near the convergence of several Indian paths.
