  • Eden-Farson Site



    Read All About It:

    The Eden-Farson Site is a Native American campsite. The main activity at the site was the processing of pronghorn killed during a communal hunt. The site includes the largest known pronghorn bone bed in the region with at least 212 animals represented. A single radio carbon date places occupation of the site at the cusp of the Protohistoric Period, which was a time of profound cultural changes for Native Americans. Site excavations revealed the presence of a minimum of 12 lodges with workshop areas, hearths, and a wealth of artifacts. The artifact assemblage from the site has been the focus of several studies and additional archaeological materials likely remain at the site.
