COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - New light could be shed on the history of the Chattahoochee Valley in a new archaeology project at Historic Westville.
Westville held a press conference Thursday at the groundbreaking site for its new archaeological dig.
The project will focus on the history of the Creek people in the region, with an emphasis on those who stayed behind during the removal period of the 19th Century.
Organizers hope the dig will provide further details and understanding of those who once inhabited the area long ago.
Officials say there will be no delay of the construction of the new Westville because they planned to find something like this.
