About two years ago, Ted Keir and I put quite a few hours into developing a video series that explains some of the basic stone tools found in our region. We had kept it hidden on our site for quite a while and had considered it a space that we would have teachers use. After reconsidering this thought, we have placed a link to this area of our website main menu.

You can watch the videos here:

This is actually a timely topic as Ted Keir, Dick Cowles, Tom Vallilee and I have been working for the past few months on a video that will briefly cover the prehistory and early Native American history of our region and integrate that story with the artifacts found in our exhibit hall. Unlike the how we created the videos on our website today, we have contracted with a third party to have this professionally made and dvd's will also be available in our Gift Shop.

To try to cover from the Ice Age to the Sullivan Campaign in around 30 minutes has been quite a feat - but we are in the last weeks of development, and are proud to have this video created for people who visit our Center to understand what the story is and how the artifacts we display relate to them. Once it is finished, visitors will be invited to watch the movie before they go into the see the exhibit hall.

Once we get this finished, we will have premiere night with our membership and special invitees.

Stay Tuned !
