Native American Artifacts

Evidence of people who lived in Michigan is often found right beneath our feet. The arrowheads, spear points, and ax head were found in the top soil of the Humphrey farm in Richland Township.  They were given to the Museum in 2009 by David Humphrey of Colorado.


The carved bird-shape stone, called a birdstone, was found in the yard of Donald Myers of Comstock.  Experts are not sure of their use but know they were made by inhabitants as many as 2,500 years ago. Myers gave the birdstone to the Museum in 2010.
