Pena Adobe and Lagoon Valley Park
|Pena Adobe site (open to the public)
The Pena Adobe Museum features Indian artifacts inside the building, and outside the museum there are two large boulders with bedrock mortars in them. The boulder shown on the left is at interpretive marker number 8, but it was moved from its original location, which was about 450 feet to the northeast, on the other side of the grass play field. The other boulder (right) sits in front of the adobe.
|Hume Grove site (open to the public)
This site is a rock slab with 10 bedrock mortars located near the south side of Hume Grove, which is about 500 yards northeast of the Pena Adobe Museum and just off the paved bike path that starts near the museum. There is also a grooved rock towards the north end of the groove. Several of the rocks here have groove marks made by drill bits and heavy machinery, but this one is special as it was probably created by Native Americans who used it to sharpen sticks and/or stone tools.
