Woodruff Museum Of Indian Artifacts (in the Bridgeton Free Public Library)
Located on the bottom floor of the Bridgeton Free Public Library, the Woodruff Museum Of Indian Artifacts features 30,000 Native American artifacts on display, of which 25,000 are arrowheads. All of these and other artifacts come from parts of Ocean and Burlington counties down through the rest of southern New Jersey. The museum was founded in 1976 by collector George J. Woodruff and his colleague Howard Radcliffe, who pieced together the clay pots on display. The oldest artifacts, Folsom points, date back 10,000 years. The iron stones in the collection date back 5,000 to 8,000 years. Other objects include gorgets, axes, cooking utensils, fishing bobs and pipes.
