Prehistoric Porter County

Mastodon bones and other artifacts mostly discovered in 1949 by Porter County farmer Myron Benedict are on display through the end of the year at Porter County Museum, 153 S. Franklin St., in Valparaiso. Children are invited to do a little digging of their own, and visitors are asked to think about what they would do if they found a tooth in their backyard.
