Many of the arrowheads in this area are black, dark brown, or charcoal grey. They are often along the waterline but can be anywhere. Most are believed to have originated with the Lenni-Lenape Tribe and date back hundreds and even thousands of years. They’re part of New Jersey history and should be left where they are found so that others can enjoy them for years to come. If you want to guarantee a local arrowhead sighting, you can visit the Cape May County Museum. They have a wonderful collection!
