In observance of National Archaeology Month, two events will be sponsored by the Franklin Historical Museum.
|Statue of CCC worker|
Freetown St Forest
This is a special opportunity to uncover our State Forest's CCC history in plain sight. This free event is scheduled from 10:00 AM - 12 Noon and parking is in the Grove Street Lot. Bring water (and bug spray). The short presentation and walk through is sponsored by the Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Franklin Historical Commission.
As part of their charter, they also do public education and, thus, are happy to come to us during Archaeology Month to discuss their findings. Doucette, and perhaps a colleague, will deliver a talk and slide presentation, possibly even accompanied by some artifacts!
The museum opens at 1:00 PM and the presentation begins at 1:15. It will last about an hour, including a question and answer session. As always, events at the museum are free and open to the public.
