Pocono History Uncovered During Field School

Historic Stoddartsville hosted another eventful field school for a team of local anthropology students who found some interesting pieces of Pocono history.  During the dig, students opened five archeological pits in different areas of interest throughout the village.  These sites included: “Mill Row” – where the mill workers lived; the general store; and the Stoddart House – a 4,000 square foot Georgian estate house built circa 1810.

As a result of their hard work, the team recovered a large number of interesting artifacts. Some of the most notable finds include coins from the 1800s, pottery made by local potters, building materials, and glassware.  Students will study these artifacts throughout the year to help tell the story of the village’s past.

In short, this year’s dig was a great success and even earned a visit from WNEP news anchor Jon Meyer. (See the news report here).  Come enjoy the history, beauty, and charm of Historic Stoddartsville for yourself!  Click here to reserve one of our four cottages.
