Directly below was located the ancient Yurok village of Tsurai, a prehistoric permanent indian community. It was first located and described by Captains Bodega and Heceta, June 9-19, 1775. The houses were of hand-split redwood planks, designed for defense and protection. The village was occupied until 1916.
