Akin Site Clean Up Day - May 16th

Saturday, May 16th Dartmouth Heritage Day at the Akin House

On May 16, 2009 from 10:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. at the Elihu Akin House, 762 Dartmouth Street, Dartmouth, Massachusetts, DHPT is hosting a vegetation & brush clearing day in preparation for its third season of archaeological work. This event is part of Dartmouth Heritage Day organized in partnership with the Dartmouth Historical Commission. The 2009 field session under the direction of Dr. Christina Hodge is scheduled for June and will concentrate on exploring the side yard of the 1762 house. To be site ready for mapping and test pits, volunteers will cut back brush and weeds which now obscure the presumed site of the Akin barn.
