Longtime Roswell resident Hubert Nix was the guest speaker at the Piedmont Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution’s meeting Saturday.

Nix, who has lived in Roswell more than 60 years, has been collecting arrowheads and Native American artifacts since the age of 10. He has made 81 framed pictures using the different colored arrowheads, including ones depicting animals, an Indian chief and even his wife. Most of the frames contain 300 to 400 arrowheads each.

Nix showed off some of the frames at the Sons of the American Revolution meeting. The Piedmont chapter of the organization works to perpetuate the people and events of the American Revolution, promote patriotism and preserve the ideals of freedom.

Nix is an Army veteran who was part of the invasion and occupying force in Japan, spending two weeks in Nagasaki after the dropping of the atomic bomb.
