AAA Editor Notes
Woodruff Museum of Indian Artifacts is in the Bridgeton Public Library at 150 E. Commerce St. Some 20,000 Native American artifacts, all collected within a 30-mile radius of Bridgeton, comprise the museum's collection. Although found locally, many of the implements were transported to the region during tribal meetings, migrations and conflicts.
Some Folsom Point arrowheads date back 10,000 years; more recent artifacts include Lenni Lenape Indian ceramic pipes, cooking utensils, fishing bobs, axes and gorgets, the latter a collar worn to protect the throat during warfare. Guides are on hand to explain the exhibits on Wednesdays.
