|Archaeological evidence of
Native Americans is found throughout Warwick.
|Here we see:
|An Iroquois pot found on a
rock ledge above Greenwood Lake by Maude Storms around 1932. It is a rare example of a large, intact
vessel. At one time it was exhibited
at the Museum of the American Indian in New York (now a part of the
Smithsonian), but its current location is unknown.
|Pottery shards which washed
up on the shores of Greenwood Lake collected by Frank Welles. The village of Quampium was at the north
end of the lake, and is now under water.
|The village of Mistucky was
across the fields next to what is now the Pioneer Restaurant.
|A Native American burial
ground was destroyed when Southern Lane was put in, photos of the disturbed
grave sites by Jack Webster were destroyed in a fire.
|This scraping & cutting
tool was found on Bellvale Mountain.
It has two blunt sides to fit into the hand comfortably, and a very
sharp, serrated edge on the left for cutting and scraping.
|The recently opened Black
Creek Historic Site in Vernon, is one of the most significant Lenape heritage
