Early findings suggest Eldridge park was once a burial site (Video)

Post by Newsman »

ELDRIDGE, Iowa -- Rumors of a forgotten graveyard in Eldridge, Iowa, may finally have some scientific backing.

On Monday, May 8th, archaeologist Glenn Storey from the University of Iowa used ground-penetrating radar to scan Franklin Park.

"He stopped and said, 'I think I found a pair,' and so I came over there and looked at the screen, and to my mind, it was obviously a pair of graves," said neighbor Larry Rauch. "What he was finding was disturbed earth and metal objects, and they might have been casket fittings, hinges, handles."
