Special Native American exhibit highlights Bethel Museum’s 40th anniversary

BETHEL – A special exhibit featuring Native American artifacts highlights the Bethel Museum’s 40th anniversary.

Numerous Indian artifacts on display were collected by Henry Hutchinson, a Bethel resident and a founding trustee of the Bethel Museum.

Many other Indian artifacts have been loaned from several other sources.

Most of Mr. Hutchinson’s artifacts have not been seen since he died in 1976.

This is a chance to see hundreds of artifacts used by ancient Nanticoke Indian tribes, learn why they moved here, and how they developed methods to survive hundreds of years ago – right on Broad Creek.

Bethel Museum trustees are honoring Henry Hutchinson, who was instrumental in forming the Bethel Historical Society in 1975.

This special exhibit will be open from 2 to 4 p.m. on every Sunday in January, February, and March.

The Bethel Museum is located at 312 First Street in Bethel.  Call the museum at 875-3974 or Kevin Phillips at 858-3840 for more information.
