The Brown Family Arrowhead Collection
This selection of multicolored arrowheads originated near a bend of the White River in the Magness Bottoms. The Brown family investigated the area in 1995 and were amazed to discover almost two dozen assorted arrowheads within a 300 year circle. Their finds include a side notch (birdpoint) arrowhead, triangle points (which may have been another type of arrow or blade; the base is chipped off), ovoid points, and a possible boomerang-shaped scraper.
This colorful collection of local arrowheads will be displayed for Arkansas Archeology Month at the Old Independence Regional Museum. We thank the sleuthing Browns (Roberta, Ed, Megan, and Corey) for their tenacious efforts in locating these beautiful examples of local culture!
