MONTICELLO, Wisconsin — The Badger State Archaeological Society will hold its 31st Annual Native American Indian Artifact Show Sunday, Oct. 26. The event will be at the Rehmstedt gym in Monticello School, 334 S. Main St., Monticello, Wisconsin, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost of admission is $2 for 14 years and older.
The show was started by Ralph Hammerly with only five tables in Monroe, Wisconsin. The show has grown to more than 80 tables of artifacts on display or for sale, including points, stone, bone, copper artifacts, Eskimo items, prints, books, pottery, jewelry, rugs and a whole lot more. The show itself is a history lesson, and there will be experts on hand to identify your artifacts.
Awards will be given for Best of Show, Best Personal Find, Judge’s Choice and Best Educational Display.
