Description

Want to channel your inner historian and archeologist? Join us on a tour of the historic Oxmoor House and archeological dig site!  Oxmoor’s curator, Shirley Harmon, will lead a historic tour of the Oxmoor house which is comprised of sections dating back to 1791, 1829 and 1928, and tell about the history of the people who lived and worked at Oxmoor Farm. Then archeologist Lori Stahlgren will lead us through a tour of the excavation site.  Participants will be able to dig and/or sift artifacts from this active archeological site.  The dig site is inside the former enslaved dwellings. The archeology is part of an ongoing restoration project that will culminate with a future exhibit inside one of the former dwellings about the life of the enslaved people that once lived at Oxmoor Farm.
