Overview
Locations

The Section of Archaeology at the State Museum will be conducting their excavation at Fort Hunter between September 7 and October 7. The public is welcome to visit and archaeologists will be on site weekdays between 10 am and 3 pm. This year, archaeologists will continue to work to identify and excavate features around the smoke house foundation in order to better understand this structure as well as near the back porch where they found an increase in Indian trade goods during last year's excavation.

The excavation may be closed if it is raining or if there was heavy rain the previous day.
