The fully-cataloged artifact assemblage was handed over to the Onslow County Museum Artifacts Collections Manager, Patricia Hughey. The material is expected to be integrated into the rotation of museum exhibits, as a collection that represents the material remains of some of Onslow County’s earliest European settlers, and to demonstrate the life of an ordinary farming family at the turn of the 19th century.
