Indian Artifacts PDF Print E-mail
A collection of Paleolithic Native American artifacts has been donated recently by the family of Thomas Dyer, a local man who found these artifacts in his fields and in the woods surrounding his home here in Canton.  An archeologist has dated these items to as early as 4000 years ago and as late as 2000 years ago.
 Part of the George H. Plude Collection of Native American Artifacts Exhibit that opened on December 19, 2010.  There are over 300 items in this collection, mostly from the Farmington Valley area.
