You never know when you will run into something interesting.  Pipestone is a clay layer that was trapped between quartzite that has a unique red color. The American Indians used this stone material to make pipes, especially peace pipes.

Various Indian tribes quarried the pipestone material and there was quite a trade program for many tribes.

At the center, there was a craftsman making pipe from the pipestone material with versions of the hands tools the Indians use in the past..
