Remains are confirmed to be Indigenous and were found in previously undisturbed ground. Gas crews digging had to go down just slightly further to fit in a part and that’s when they found the remains. They had not been disturbed by previous work.

We hope to learn more about this discovery and about the Indigenous history of Sharpsburg. The Historical Commission had already planned to bring Indigenous representatives to town this fall, so keep an eye on this page and the newspaper for more details.
