Holcombe Beach in Sterling Heights

A beach in landlocked Sterling Heights, you say? This we had to see on Dodge Park Rd at Metro Parkway where Heritage Junior High is currently sitting. Turns out, it's a beach that used to be --in 9000 BC.  The University of Michigan spent five years conducting an archaelogical  dig near here some 50 years ago of an ancient Paleo Indian settlement.  Around 7,000 artifacts consisting mostly of arrowheads and flint chips were unearthed along with the caribou that they hunted.  Scientists in the know claim this site rivals the major finds in Mexico, Canada and New Mexico.
