The Parker House Site: A Small Outlying Site of Interest

Sponsored by National Park Service/Cape Cod National Seashore

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 - 11:00am

Location:
Wellfleet/Truro line
Off of Route 6
Truro, MA
United States

Sometimes a small archaeological site is discovered at a great distance from other more significant sites.  Such is the case of the Parker House site, a small outlying cellar hole site beneath power lines and partially disturbed in modern times.  Join Park Archaeologist, Frederica Dimmick, and Park Historian, Bill Burke, for a quick look at what features this site holds, what artifacts have been found, and what the site might tell us about a remote corner of Truro in the 19th century.  Turn onto the first paved road off of Route 6 when passing into Truro from Wellfleet; travel a short distance past the first house.  Program will be 45 minutes and includes a short walk.
