WALNUT GROVE ARCHAEOLOGY PROJECT – 2017
This year the archaeological excavation on the Fenton History Center grounds will continue 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 location of the carriage house and west side house addition.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE Dig days will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the summer beginning in June. We will also excavate some Saturdays. Days we aren’t digging, we will be washing artifacts. Due to the confined space and small scale of the project, the number of participants is limited. If you would like to join us call the Fenton History Center at (716) 664-6256.
