An important piece of Indian art known as a Popeyed birdstone was found in 1935 in Franklin Township of Shelby County, Ohio. Pictured at left, it is now in the collection of a Sidney resident and Indian artifact collector, Ron Helman. If artifacts are found, and believed to be of importance, it is essential to get to an expert immediately.

An effigy pipe is a pottery handicraft that was used for smoking tobacco and resembled real creatures. They were made from what is called Ohio pipe stone, a clay found in the Scioto River valley that can be easily carved and baked. Remember, if artifacts are found, and believed to be of importance, it is essential to get to an expert immediately.
