OF INTEREST:   Keith Riley states: "During the past 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 inches long. I estimate that these artifacts are at least two hundred and fifty (250) years old.  I have, also, done some research in trying to determine 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 the Indian's "Happy Hunting Grounds."
