Neal Lopinot is pointing to artifacts associated with Delaware Indian Village, often called Delaware Town, that date back to the 1820s. 

“These are British gun flints, pipe fragments, square nails, scissors.  This is probably part of a stove; from a stove. This is probably part of a utensil; spoon/knife,” he says.

Through a treaty, a group of Delaware moved from Indiana to southwest Missouri and for a short time occupied land along the James River Basin and part of what would later become Springfield.
