Faunal remains, Block 3
(left = deer; center = fish; upper
left = turtle; lower right = small mammal).
The upper levels of Block 3 contained a historic archaeological deposit.
Based on oral history, the deposits are associated with the Twenty Man
Club, dating to the 1930s, where men met to fish, hunt, play cards, and
drink beer. The types of artifacts recovered are familiar to many people
today, and are consistent with the reported behaviors -- except for a
metal hair pin.
