First Peoples: Catawba & Cherokee Nations Exhibit on display NOW – May 20, 2017 Open Tues. – Sat. 10am – 4pm. Admission is free!
This original exhibit features archaeological and historical collections on loan from the Schiele Museum of Natural History, the Inn of the Patriots, and several private collectors. The display includes stone and bone tools, ceramics, basketry, weaponry, and other artifacts that provide insight into how Native Americans utilized natural resources to meet their needs for millennia prior to European contact, and how the clash of the Old World with the New forever changed local Native American cultures.
