Native American Artifact Collection at The Warther Museum

For the entire month of April, during their normal business hours, The Warther Museum in Dover will be showcasing a special Native American Artifact Collection, one of the largest individual collections in the country, by Edward and Lula Richard. With plenty of time to see the exhibit, we encourage anyone looking for an April getaway to make this a must-see stop in the area.

According to the information provided on The Warther Museum's website and Facebook page concerning the event, Edward Richard was the youngest sibling of Frieda Warther, wife of Ernest Warther, whose carvings are what started the tradition of the Museum. Edward loved to go looking for Native American artifacts with the Warther couple every Sunday, and ultimately this hobby led to a lifelong passion.


Together with his wife Lula, Edward traveled all over North America, including Mexico, New Mexico, Tennesee, Texas, Ohio, and Nova Scotia to excavate and compile this unique collection of artifacts. Upon the couple's passing, the exhibit was entrusted to the Warther Museum to be used for educational purposes, but also to preserve the collection. April of 2017 will only be the second time in history that the Edward and Lula Richard collection has been displayed to the public, so it is not to be missed.
