Major John Buttrick House, Minute Man National Historical Park
231 Liberty Street
Over a quarter million artifacts have been recovered from archaeological excavations at Minute Man National Historical Park. The collection includes objects from the late 17th through the early 20th centuries, as well as earlier Native American artifacts. Through historical records artifacts from many sites can be related to specific families and to homes that are no longer standing. A range of objects will be presented including everyday household items such as spoons and forks, children’s toys, hand tools, ceramic tankards and plates, and objects of personal adornment such as buckles and wig curlers. Join Alicia Paresi, Curator of Archaeology for the National Park Service, for a presentation on highlights from the park’s archaeological collections. Selected pieces from the museum collection will be on display during the presentation.
