HENRY ENGINEER HOSTING ARCH. DIG NEAR BRIDGE SITE

posted by Defiance Newsroom - 

As Henry County gears-up for construction of a second bridge over the Maumee River on the east side of Napoleon, consultants are researching whether some historical artifacts in that location might shed some light on the past.    Mannik and Smith is coordinating the archaelogical survey on the south side of the river, and north of state route 110.    Henry County Engineer Tim Schumm reports there have been some items found, including a cooking hearth and underground storage area.   About 30 people took advantage of a public dig at the site last Saturday.  Another is scheduled this Saturday from 10am till 2pm, weather permitting.  You can look for items along side researchers.  Just report to the Henry County Engineer’s office, in their new location in the Oakwood Office Complex, adjacent to Municipal Court.
