American Indians have lived in the Hopewell area for at least 9,000 years. Volunteers and an intern have recently completed cataloging the approximately 2000 Indian artifacts in the Hopewell Museum collection. Much of the material was donated to the Museum by local collectors.

Through the study of these artifacts, together other types of record, including historical sources, we are learning more about the ways of life of the people who lived here for so long.

Presented by Ian Burrow, a professional archaeologist and a Trustee of the Hopewell Museum.

If you'd like to come early, some interesting artifacts from the Museum and other materials will be on display from 6:45 pm.
