CA landmark website now lists location as "restricted per Section 6254.10 of CA State Government Code." "Archery Range," as mentioned in the guidebook, is approximate, as are the photos.


From the Guidebook:

This was the location of the most significant Indian village and cemetery of this region. The Nisipowinan, part of the Maidu tribe, had a strong economic and cultural interaction with Capt. John A. Sutter's settlement in the 1840s.
