Linda Saidler found a Suttles pottery sherd when La Vernia Historical Association members sorted through a historic pile of dirt on May 21. The artifacts were found in soil excavated from the La Vernia City Hall parking lot before it was paved several years ago. The association transferred the top layer of the dirt to private locations to examine it for broken pottery pieces.
George and Isaac Suttles were Civil War soldiers who came to La Vernia after the war to make pottery. Their pottery business was located in the center of La Vernia. A permanent exhibit of Suttles pottery is in the La Vernia Heritage Museum, operated by the association.
