Artifacts from Island Run
Yesterday, my dad and I went to look for Job Harvey’s paper mill (near Island Run), known as the Ohio & Pennsylvania paper Mill. We also decided to visit two Sandy & Beaver Canal locks that were close. While we were passing through the canal channel, I noticed a pottery shard lying on the ground. Of course, I picked it up and kept it. Then all of a sudden, I saw another piece of pottery, and then another, nearly every second. I found glass, white pottery, kiln posts and Homer Laughlin china, some of it Fiesta Ware.
