The ancient Native American pestle tool is a handheld device that was primarily used for grinding materials such as grains, nuts, and seeds. It is believed that these tools were in use for thousands of years, with many examples dating back to prehistoric times. Native American tribes across the Americas used pestles as an essential part of their daily lives. These tools were often made from dense stones such as granite, basalt, or sandstone.


The pestle found on the Vaughter Farm is an exciting discovery that sheds light on the way of life of the Native American tribes that once inhabited the area. The artifact is likely to be several hundred years old and may have been used by the tribe that lived on the farm or by a neighboring tribe. The pestle is made of a dense, smooth stone and has an elongated shape with a rounded top. It is easy to imagine how this tool would have been used to grind corn, nuts, or other materials, either by hand or by using a mortar.


The discovery of this artifact is not only significant for its historical value but also for the insights it can provide about the Native American way of life. The use of the pestle as a tool for food preparation is evidence of the importance of agriculture and the ingenuity of the tribes in using natural resources to sustain themselves. The discovery of this pestle, along with other artifacts from the region, provides a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the people who once called the Vaughter Farm and the surrounding area their home.
