The artifacts are from the collection of the late "Tex" Richards of Indian Head, MD, and have been loaned to the Friends for display by his son Don Richards and Jack McGuire. The artifacts; including pottery sherds, projectile points, arrow heads and unusualy stone tools; were collected along the Mattawoman Creek in Pomonkey, Mason Springs, and Indian Head.
