Faces in Clay
810 Main Street, Honesdale Museum
The Faces in Clay exhibit originally opened in 1995 in the lower level of the 810 Main Street, Honesdale museum. After construction was completed on the John & Helen Villaume Wing it was reinstalled and reopened to the public in the spring of 2008. With the late County Historian Vernon Leslie's 4,600-plus archaeology collection as its basis, this exhibit interprets the Native American history of the upper Delaware Valley. A number of important features of their lifestyle, hunting and gathering techniques and social customs are highlighted. In addition, Vernon Leslie's life's work is interpreted and a 17th century dugout canoe can be viewed to the accompaniment of the soothing sounds of the river and forest.
