Museum looking for Native American tools and points

| September 7, 2012

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is planning an exhibit of local Native American archaeological finds. The exhibit’s purpose is educational. Coshocton County is known for its abundance of pre-historic material, and many archaeologists and collectors would be interested in seeing the variety of pieces found in our area. Artifacts will be on loan to the museum for the duration of the exhibit, Oct. 20 through Jan. 30.

The success of this exhibit is contingent on participation by local collectors. Artifacts will be kept in locked cases within a secure environment. JHM has a full security system with cameras and motion detectors. Once potential participants are identified, each collector will be offered a proportion of available display space.

If you possess Native American Indian artifacts found in Coshocton County or adjacent counties and are interested in loaning them to the museum, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum as soon as possible. The museum’s phone number is 622-8710 and e-mail address, [email protected]. Those who would rather talk to a staff member in person may stop by the museum at 300 N. Whitewoman St. Office hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Please help us make this show a success. Traces of Time, Traces of Glory: Native American Pre-historic Tools & Points will go on display in October.
