WALNUT GROVE ARCHAEOLOGY PROJECT – 2016
This year the archaeological excavation on the Fenton History Center grounds will again focus in an area where an early structure associated with the mansion once stood. This area is under the pine trees near the steamboat propeller. We will continue to attempt to determine the size and use of this structure. We will also investigate the locations of other known outbuildings.
For more information check out the link to our current brochure here and check back to this website as the dig progresses.
Volunteers are welcome to come help uncover the Fenton’s story. The excavation will commence on Tuesday, June 7, and the following Tuesdays and Wednesdays through the summer, 9 am-3 pm each day. If the weather is poor, washing will take place in the Fenton History Center.
