Indian Artifacts in the Presby House Museum (Photo Diary)

The Presby House Museum in Goldendale, Washington, has three display cases filled with Indian artifacts. These included beaded items (moccasins, gloves, bags), baskets, and a variety of stone artifacts (pestles, mortars, projectile points). The items are displayed with no explanation of tribal histories or aboriginal use. Most of the items were probably trade items made by the Indian people living along the Columbia River for trade to non-Indians.
