What Lies Beneath?
Warwick, NY (WHS): A 15×20 foot stone building? Buried 6 feet underground? A hidden chimney? Two hidden cisterns? A GPR-located buried mystery feature? Hundreds of artifacts? Could it be that the Warwick Historical Society’s SHINGLEDIG team has unearthed important, even unprecedented, new information about the colonial days of Shingle House? And if so, when will they share it with the public? These questions were answered on Sunday, March 26 at 2pm at “SHINGLEDIG: SEASON THREE”, featuring finds, photos and information from the 2016 digging season at Shingle House, along with the 2016 well-dig and summer camp at Baird’s Tavern.
