2017 Excavation Results from the Hollister Site

Tuesday, May 22, 2018
7:30pm – 9:00pm

First Church Congregational, 2183 Main Street, Glastonbury

The 2017 field season focused on two main questions. The first was to determine if post features could be found between the three main cellars identified in 2015. If so, these could provide information about the architecture of the old Hollister house. The second was to explore a new cellar feature to the south and determine if a nearby, possible wigwam feature related in time to the Hollister Farm. This talk summarizes our finds and digs into the Gilbert and Hollister family historical documents more deeply as well.
