(Circa 1500-1800 AD)

Discovered about 1930
by Henry Clark
near Frohawk Creek on property
belonging to J.T. Moon. Most likely
used to crack and grind corn and acorns
into meal by a band of Lower Cherokee,
this mortar is highly unusual because
of its massive dimensions, a fact which
suggests the possibility that a permanent
village was once located nearby.
