"The exhibit is the county's first comprehensive and authentic presentation of Native American cultures that once flourished in Indiana territory and Putnam County in particular," reports Greencastle's Banner-Graphic. "Thanks to numerous contributions from county residents, the exhibit includes tools from 1300 B.C., artifacts, clothing, and original pottery that will enable visitors to immerse themselves in the experience gain a better understanding of the cultures and lifestyle of Woodland Indians."

Murphy tells the newspaper, "We have compiled vast research into a concise presentation for anyone to enjoy. So many people are interested in natural lifestyle, but don't have time to do research on their own -- this exhibit is an excellent opportunity for them to learn."
