Mastodon Bones On Display In New Lab

October 2, 2011
The Post-Journal

If a student or visitor looks up when they visit the new JHS science lab, they'll see a few gigantic bones in a display case. What most people don't know is bones are from a Mastodon discovered on a farm just outside of Jamestown in 1871. A portion of the Mastodon tusk, part of its jawbone, and some of its teeth are now displayed due to the work of Records Management Coordinator Pam Brown and protected in a specially designed case by Jamestown School's maintenance workers Larry Muntz and Bob Martin. This case will help preserve, and safely protect, these fragile fossils for generations of viewing by Jamestown students.
