Report on Archaeological Digs Arrives

We are so grateful to Catherine Ambrose and Judy Ambrose who recently delivered a report on the artifacts from the archaeological digs of 1969 and 1973. Culminating a year of volunteer work at the State Office of Archaeology, Catherine, Judy, and Mary Grayson Brook completed a study of the 877 artifacts that had been languishing in the vaults at the Archaeology lab since the original digs. Their findings did not conclusively prove that the burials were those of Lane family members; it did suggest however, that the graves were too late to be those of Joel or either of his wives. image

What visitors say

Thank you for the excellent tour of the Joel Lane House.  I learned a lot about the history of Raleigh as well as the Joel Lane House.  I learned how harsh conditions were back then and how we take for granted things they did not have back then.  The structure of houses has really changed a lot since the Joel Lane House was built.
