Museum acquires prehistoric artifacts

WPHS Curator Brian Schmit went to the Florida State Bureau of Archaeological Research in Tallahassee yesterday (7/24). He was able to acquire 25 prehistoric artifacts on loan for the museum. The artifacts date back 10,000 years and were discovered by Hudson resident Herb Elliott. The archaeologists were delighted that the artifacts were going back to their home in Pasco County. The stone lithics will be showcased in our new Native American display opening at the end of August. Pictured with Brian are archeologists Marie Prentice and Dr. Sam Wilford.
