1. Indian Houses Marker
Inscription. Indians have lived here next to this good fishing hold for 10,000 years.
As long as 3,000 years ago, they had large oval houses, 28 feet long by 24 feet wide. To build these houses, they put a bark and mat covering over a frame of 50 or so house posts. Four or more families lived in a house this size. From their village here by the river, they went out to hunt deer or dig camas. They had to travel widely in their constant search for food.
