I recently came across these images of a couple of interpretive orientation panels that I created while working as Director of Education at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village, which is located in Washington County, Pennsylvania. I wrote the text, did the photography and made arrangements with artists John Buxton and Mark Kelly to feature their artwork. The graphic design was done at the Senator John Heinz History Center and the fabrication of the panels was done by Pannier Graphics located in Gibsonia, PA. Pannier's newsletter article on the Meadowcroft project can be seen here.
The panels are located just outside of the two outdoor interpretive areas that I curated while working at Meadowcroft. The first panel introduces visitors to a recreated circa 1570s Monongahela Culture Indian village. The second panel orients visitors to a recreated 1770s style open-faced shelter that serves as a trading post and the log cabin home of an American Indian family. The panels and interpretive areas explore these two formative periods of time from the perspective of environmental history.

It was a great time to be at Meadowcroft when the panels were created. Thanks for the remembering.
