TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Progress is being made toward the creation of a Creek Indian museum in downtown Talladega.

About five months ago, the Greater Talladega Area Chamber of Commerce announced the $5,000 purchase of a Creek Indian exhibit from The Birmingham Museum of Art.

The building that will house the museum will take about $200,000 to remodel.

The village display will stay in storage until the building on the downtown square is remodeled, but in the meantime many of the exhibit’s artifacts are on display at the Heritage Hall Museum.

The artifacts include a deer rattle for baby, a conch shell that was used as water cup, bottles of black powder that were used for rifles, copper trade buckets, a buffalo robe made out of buffalo hide, and pottery.
