Flint Ridge State Memorial

With State funding for historic sites dwindling The Licking Valley Heritage Society has stepped up to take on the operation of this ancient and significant flint quarry.

....native Americans would come to these flint pits to quarry this beautiful and useful stone to be napped into arrowheads and tools.

The transition from the Ohio Historical Society to our Licking Valley Heritage Society was accompolished at this meeting of OHS reps George Kane and Vickie Branson and LVHS reps Duane Flowers, Dave Hile and me.

Activity at the Nap In

Roy Miller, the Guru of flint napping demonstrated is technique of taking a chunk of flint and shaping it into an arrowhead or blade....... he's being watched by interested onlookers.....

This is Jim, our first paying customer to the museum.

Miller Meal and Reunion

It's always a good time when we get together with Mom's side of the family for food and "catch up" conversation. I love picking Elizabeth's brain since it's so full of information on a wide variety of subjects!

Spring Has Sprung

To those who have followed this blog I need to explain why the lack of posts.... I would use this forum to track our life adventure here at Pleasant Chapel. Two things have occured that have contributed to the infrequency of posts. I have been using Facebook social networking site to post to. ....primarily I have been unable to post from Picassa to blogspot. I am posting these shots from the garden for those who enjoy the beauty of nature.
