In 1957, four Native campsites were excavated on the banks of the Bear River.  These people shifted their living areas from their winter to their summer location.  Clam shells mark some of the areas on the shores of the upper and lower Bear River.  

A new discovery in 1965 were masses of shells in an abandoned pasture.  Four large hearths had served to dry or smoke clams for the winter.
