Scope & Content THE SEATTLE TIMES ran a photo article titled "Archeology at the Picnic Grounds" on March 20, 1955. Of interest to Anacortes residents was a shell deposit about 125 feet southeast of the camp kitchen in the Bowman Bay section of Deception Pass State Park. "The diggers found a representative collection of Indian artifacts. Two to five feet below the surface they uncovered about 200 objects, principally ground-stone implements and bones."

The article also relates other Washington locations of archeological sites on both sides of the Cascades and the efforts being made to make them accessible to visitors.
