Jeffers Petroglyphs

Jeffers Petroglyphs are ancient beds of etched bedrock. This is also one of the most beautiful areas of prairie remaining in Minnesota and an important Native American historical site.

This eighty acre historic site features more than two thousand protected symbols that were carved into the ground by Native Americans as long ago as 3,000 BC. Others may be more recent...possibly carved as recently as the 1700's.

The symbols are primarily representations of animals including buffalo, elk, deer, turtles and thunderbirds. Others include human figures, tools and other figures representing life at that time.

Some of the most stunning views are of the pink quartzite embedded in the prairie grass. There are also at least 100 varieties of wild flowers in this prairie.

The Jeffers Petroglyphs site is open varying hours during the year.

You can call ahead to find out when they are open (507-628-5591). There is a small charge to tour the site.

Consider timing your visit for early morning or late evening as the shapes are more easily discerned in the light of those times.
