3CN168 Tracing
The Seven Hollows/Petit Jean Mountain
Site #1 (3CN168) was listed on the National

Register of Historic Places on  9/20/06.
The Site's pictographs (which contain three)
are still in their original locations,
with the exception of the historic still,
the rock shelter likely has a similar

feeling as it did originally and the site is still
associated with Native Americans.
