Bentonsport Indian Artifact Museum

category : Museums
Bentonsport Indian Artifact Museum Artisan, Tony Sanders, has achieved a unique blend of woodworking and history with his collection of over 4,000 arrowheads. All of the woodwork from the building to the display cases are built by hand from over 16 different native woods and shaped into various patterns.

For about 60 years, Tony has combed Southeast Iowa, Northwest Missouri and Northeast Illinois for arrowheads and other artifacts. Scouring the countryside along streams beds after strong rains and in newly tilled farm fields, Tony may find up to 13 or 14 arrowheads at a time. He has even found a tropical tree root and mastodon teeth during his day long trips.

Hours: Open Weekends Mid April to December, 10-4 PM, by chance or appointment.
