Midlands residents can soon observe artifacts from prehistoric South Carolina.

The Blythewood Historical Society and Museum will be hosting a traveling exhibit on South Carolina's Native American prehistory. "Share a Little Human Touch: The Prehistory of South Carolina," is created by the Native American Studies Center, USC Lancaster, and will take place Oct. 11, 18 and 25. The event will be held at the Langford-Nord House, at 100 McNulty St. in Blythewood.

The Blythewood Historical Society and Museum received an "extensive collection" of arrowheads and other prehistoric stone tools from Don Daniels, which will be used in the exhibit. According to administrative manager Margaret Kelly, there will also be 11 panels on display.

Small groups will be allowed to view the exhibit at a time, with masks required. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibit will be open from 3 to 5 p.m. More information can be obtained by calling Margaret Kelly at 803-333-8133 Tuesday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
