Larry Ehlinger of the EARTH Metal Detecting Club of Central NY will be giving a presentation at the Oriskany Museum on Saturday June 1, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. Ehlinger has been detecting for over twenty years and has amassed an impressive collection of coins, jewelry, and tokens as well as mundane items like bullets, buttons, pocket knives, ax heads and iron farming tools and relics. Much of his presentation will focus on his recent recovery of colonial-era artifacts discovered by chance along the Mohawk River corridor. He will also discuss respectful recovery methods and how his many finds are researched, preserved and displayed for future historical education. Admission is free and no reservations are necessary.
The Oriskany Museum is located at 420 Utica Street in Oriskany, NY and is open to visitors Wednesday through Saturday from 1-5 p.m. For additional information about the museum or this event, please visit oriskanymuseum.com or call the museum at 315-736-7529.
