COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus State University and the Historic Chattahoochee Commission have unveiled the next stop on the Creek Heritage Trail with series of historical educational panels and Creek Indian artifacts.

The four panels depict various lifestyle aspects of the Creek Indians who called the Chattahoochee River Valley their home. The display also highlights the Creek town of Cusseta, once located on the land that is now Fort Benning.

Mike Bunn, Executive Director of the Historic Chattahoochee Commission, says, "The story of how those people interacted over time is the story how this region developed.  And it is part of shared heritage through the region we hope this panel help, and encourage people  to  appreciate the history all around them and learn more about the past."

CSU President Tim Mescon delivered remarks during an unveiling event at Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center on Thursday, May 22.

The panels are located near the entrance of Oxbow Meadows where there is an indoor display of artifacts that include arrowheads, pottery, buttons, copper works, and pieces of jewelry.
