|OF INTEREST: Keith Riley states: "During
years, I have collected over five hundred (500) Indian arrowheads, some
pottery and other artifacts, many of which were found in the immediate
area. The arrowheads range in size from about 1 inch to about 3
long. I estimate that these artifacts are at least two hundred and
(250) years old. I have, also, done some research in trying to
the name of the tribe or tribes who inhabited this area, but have been
unsuccessful thus far. We truly believe this section was one of
Indian's "Happy Hunting Grounds."
