The Naranjo Museum of Natural History in Lufkin, TX will host an opening event for a new Texas Artifacts Exhibit on Saturday, November 21st, from 1:00pm-5:00pm.

The new exhibit will display a variety of artifacts from everyday life during the early days
of Texas. Some of the most unique pieces of the exhibit are on loan from the Sam Houston State Natural History Collections.

Along with viewing the new exhibit, visitors are also invited to bring artifacts, fossils or other items to be identified by Dr. Neal Naranjo and Mr. Morris Weeks. Dr. Naranjo specializes in identifying fossils, bones and rocks and Mr. Weeks of Beaumont, TX is an
expert in identifying Native American arrowheads and artifacts.

“This will be a fun day for visitors to experience the new exhibit, learn more about artifacts in their own collections and meet other history enthusiasts.”-Veronica Amoe, Naranjo Museum Manager.
