Museum Monday #3 - "Moe" the mastodon is on display upstairs in the Hill Memorial Museum. This partial skeleton was discovered in 1962 during the dredging of a bog at Camp Auxilium in Hampton Township. Originally found were the skull, upper jaw and about a dozen ribs. It was not until 1965 when his five-foot tusks, weighing 50 pounds, were recovered along with a few minor bones. Check back next Monday to learn more about this museum.
