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 touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
