Listen to archaeologist Kristen Heitert give an illustrated talk on a multi-year archaeological investigation which uncovered house foundations, field systems, abandoned roads, and sawmill ruins associated with the former “Wildcat” neighborhood of Milford. This neighborhood began as farming community in the eighteenth century and later shifted focus to the quarrying industry that dominated nineteenth-century Milford. Learn about this small, largely forgotten piece of Milford’s history through artifacts, photographs, maps, and field drawings from the Wildcat Pond Site Complex.
