November 21, 2014 Meeting: Buffalo River Archaeological Sites

Melissa Baier, archaeologist at the Buffalo National River, gave the program at the Searcy County Historical Society meeting, Friday, November 21, 2014 at the First Christian Church in Marshall. Ms Baier has given programs to the Historical Society in the past and has been well received as an articulate knowledgeable presenter. This program was about the status of preservation of archaeological sites along the Buffalo River and what we can do to preserve our heritage. Pictures were to be shown, but no one brought a projector. We hope to have Ms Baier in January with pictures.
