Last Fall, several Chapter 28 members tested an area at Haldeman Mansion where a terrace is slated to cover what seems to be where an unrecorded structure was once located. Our small excavation located what appears to be a portion of a stone foundation, numerous historic ceramic and glass fragments, and other interesting features. We would like to gain some further insight, so we’re planning to have Chapter members participate in some additional testing in April.
To prepare for this, we are holding a workshop to present the work we’ve done and discuss our plans for April. The workshop will be held 2-4 pm, Sunday, March 22, at the Blue Rock Heritage Center, 2251 River Road, Washington Boro, PA about 5 miles below Columbia. All Chapter 28 members will be welcome to view the work in April, but if you want to get your “hands dirty”, you need to attend this workshop.
