Archaeologists test the grounds at Hamilton House
December 23, 2011
Preservation is happening above and below ground at Hamilton House. Archaeologists spent several days testing to determine the sensitivity of an area of the property slated for a new drainage system.
The proposed drainage system will redirect ground and rainwater away from several historic structures, a vital step for their long-term preservation. The results of the archaeological testing will help preservationists locate the drainage system to avoid negatively impacting archaeological resources.
