Archeology


At one time the landscape of the Twistflower Ranch played home to a prehistoric and native culture. Its life-giving creeks and bountiful game species no doubt provided vital resources to those who came before. Today, echos of this ancient past still remain in the form of rock shelters and pictographs.
