1. "Daycholah" Marker
Inscription. The Native Americans who occupied this land 10,000 years before the arrival of European settlers referred to this magnificent body of water as Daycholah. From lookouts like this, Native Americans viewed the lake and paid homage to "the spirit who dwells beneath the water."

Near this location, an unusual open square earthwork was built circa 1000 A.D. Lost to development, this structure and many burial mound sites surrounded the shores of Green Lake.
