SOLD OUT - Harbor History Talk - Archaeology at the King House

Thursday, September 19, 2019 05:30pm - 07:00pm

Dig into history on Thursday, September 19 when the Historical Society welcomes Professor Kerri Finlayson for a presentation about the ongoing archaeological excavations at the King House, an 1850s Odawa log cabin located near Good Hart. The cabin, recently restored by the King House Association, has been vacant since the 1950's and is one of only two log cabins remaining from the historic Native American town, Middle Village.

Kerri Finlayson is a Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at North Central Michigan College. She has led archaeological excavations in Belize, Nicaragua, and northern Michigan at both prehistoric and historic sites. She and co-director, Dave Frurip, have been excavating at the King House since 2016.

The talk will take place on the second floor of the museum and begins at 5:30 pm. Refreshments will be provided. Admission is $5 for Historical Society members and $10 for non-members. Reservations are encouraged and can be made by calling (231) 526-9771.
