AIA-New York Society National Archaeology Day Event


An 1857 map of Seneca Village fomerly located in today's Central Park in Manhattan.

The AIA-New York Society will be celebrating National Archaeology Day a week early with a talk about the ongoing excavation at Seneca Village in Central Park.  After the talk participants will be able to view some of the artifacts from the excavation!

See the event page for more details about the event and a brief history of the 19th century African-American community living in what today is Central Park.
