From The Roanoke Times

1998 (10 years ago)
"Although construction on a welcome center for the Botetourt Center at Greenfield is a while off, county officials already are collecting and storing artifacts to display in it. The artifacts, some dating back to 6,000 B.C., include arrowheads and spearheads, flakes, hammerstone pieces, pottery, bottle fragments and an 1889 Liberty Head nickel. They were unearthed by Preservation Technologies Inc., which conducted a cultural resource management study of the entire 922-acre proposed industrial park/ business complex that also will include an education and training center and historic preservation area."
