Year: 2018


Excavations at the Jacksonport State Park over the 2014 to 2015 field season have produced over 65,000 artifacts. This material has providing information about the lives of Jacksonport's residents from its prominence and period of historical significance (1852-1892) and on to the subsequent poor house era (1910-1953). Within this extensive collection are several campaign/ president pipes imported from Germany from circa 1830 to circa 1870. The identifiable specimens include presidential candidates Lewis Cass and Henry Clay as well as a 'philosopher' style with a likeness to Ulysses Grant. This poster will discuss these unique artifacts and how they might shed some light on the politics and economy during Jacksonport's heyday.
