An archaeologist from University of Massachusetts Archaeological Services will give a presentation about excavations at the Dickinson Homestead and The Evergreens carried out in spring and summer 2014 in preparation for the installation of a drainage system and reconstruction of Emily Dickinson’s conservatory.  Dickinson called the conservatory her “little garden within.”  Significant components of the original structure, built in 1855, were saved when the conservatory was dismantled 100 years ago, and will be used in the reconstruction.
