Parsons House Community Archaeological Dig
May 18 - June 30
In May and June 2015, Historic Northampton will conduct a community archaeological dig at the 1719 Parsons House under the supervision of archaeologist Dr. Linda Ziegenbein. Community participation is made possible by a matching grant from Mass Humanities and generous individual donations made through Valley Gives, a project of the Community Foundation for Western Massachusetts. This project has its own website at www.diggingnorthamptonshistory.wordpress.com.
Coming summer 2015
Northampton Timelines is a website with an interactive map: click on a hotspot and the history of the property pops up - how it was used, what was built there, who owned it over time and what kind of lives they led. This project will build on the contributions of scores of local researchers and historians. See a mock-up of the site at www.northamptontimelines.org
