Originally located in the upper story of El Molino Viejo, these volcanic tufa millstones ground grain for the indian community of Mission San Gabriel. The stones were turned by water flowing from nearby canyons. When the mill fell into disuse, the stones disappeared. A century later they were found on the Huntington Library grounds by General George S. Patton, who, as a young boy had seen them used as blocks for mounting horses.
