Minnis Ranch – Ed Levin Park – Fremont

14 Bedrock Mortars & Pestles

It took us awhile to find this spot.


Unscrupulous, selfish explorers have been known to steal pestles. It’s wrong.

Although we know there are used and broken pestles lying around every site.


Don’t do it! Leave them for others to enjoy and appreciate.


Many early ranches are located right on top of prime Native American village sites.

They often have small collections of pestles, portable mortars, and arrowheads on their front porches.

Go figure.


Many people don’t realize that clicking on each site brings up photos and text.
