Ancient burial ground gets national designation
Source: The Orange County Register
BY CINDY CARCAMO

A site that is widely regarded as an ancient American Indian burial ground at the Bolsa Chica Mesa has received national historic designation, exciting preservationists who say the move grants the area slightly more protection against future development.

Federal officials last month determined the cogged stone site at Bolsa Chica as eligible for listing with the National Register of Historic Places. The area was named after the hundreds of carved stone disks cogged stones found on the site. The disks were possibly used for sacred rituals.

We value the property as a significant resource, said National Register of Historic Places historian Paul Lusignan. There was a tremendous amount of information about the prehistoric site and distinction for the fact that it has the cogged stone site, which is a unique archeological feature found in very few other locations.

The designation makes the cogged stone site the only archeological spot along the Orange County coast to receive such an honor. The area captures some of the land within the Hearthside Homes development and an estimated six acres of unincorporated land owned by Don Goodell that the city of Huntington Beach is proposing to annex.
