Construction of the Marshall County Children’s Art Center in Benton has been halted after an infant's remains were unearthed at the site.

Marshall County Coroner Mitchell Lee said the remains date back to between 1850 and 1900, when it’s believed the area was used as a cemetery. Construction won't resume until it can be legally determined what to do with the remains, which were found on a portion designated as a green part of the property, or parking lot.
