Thu Jun 20, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
The Monroe County Historical Association is pleased to announce a free program open to the public. Dr. Jonathan Burns of Juniata College will give a presentation titled, “Phase I Archaeological Testing at the Stroud Mansion” as part of the Third Thursday Lecture Series. The program will be Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at the Stroud Mansion, 900 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.
Producing over 2,000 artifacts from just eight test pits, recent archaeological testing at the Stroud Mansion revealed material traces from the Early Archaic Period (ca. 9000 B.P), Colonial Era Fort Hamilton (1756), and the construction and occupation of Stroud Mansion (1795 to ca. 1900). This program will highlight items uncovered during the Phase I testing and how these artifacts help tell the history of the Stroud Mansion property.
The Third Thursday Lecture Series is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. Light refreshments will be served. The presentation will be held on the 2nd floor of the Stroud Mansion, which is not handicap-accessible. For additional information or to make a reservation, please contact the Monroe County Historical Association office at (570) 421-7703 or email at email@example.com.
