Wilson's CreekAn archaeological study is a lot like a detective story. In 1966 an archeological investigation uncovered many bits of evidence from the area in front of you - the remnants of John and Martha Gibson's home. Bone handled dinner service, pewter utensils, and good china indicate the Gibson's relative affluence. Horse and mule shoes, wrought iron handles, an iron mold for casting lead shot, and numerous farming items point out that this "good life" was well earned. In an age when self sufficiency was a way of life John Gibson was undoubtedly a farmer, blacksmith, hunter, and carpenter, as well as a miller.
