Historic Artifacts

A small number of historical artifacts were found at the Miami Circle, including iron nails, bullet casings and musket balls, glass bottle fragments, buttons, and historic ceramic sherds like pearlware and stoneware. Artifacts like perforated coins and glass beads are probably associated with Seminole Indians who visited William Brickell’s store at the site between 1870 and 1900. Most of the historic artifacts date to the nineteenth century, though a few creamware sherds may be earlier. Other historic artifacts include clay pipe fragments and a silver thimble.
