This sign is located at the parking lot for the Paulina Lake Day Use Area

Marker Name: Lakefront Property
Marker Text: One of the oldest manmade structures in North America was uncovered during an archaeological dig in 1992 just 300 yards (90 m) from here. Unfortunately, the view changes every time the volcano erupts. But the reasons people come here haven’t changed at all.
This Really, Really Old House
The view from that old house, 10,500 years ago, included on giant lake. Today, looking north across Paulina Lake you see steep-sided hills, part of the 23-mile-rim that encloses the major eruptive center of Newberry volcano. Approximately 7300 years ago, volcanic eruptions split the caldera in half and East Lake was born. To view the whole story, drive up to Paulina Peak.
Who else lives lakeside? The caldera was designated a State Wildlife Refuge in 1957. Ospreys nest in snags and eagles steal mid-air fish dinners from hard working osprey parents. Forget to put away your food and -guess who’s coming to dinner- a bear. These days people still make seasonal visits and animals call this home all year long.
