McDonald House Excavation and Documentation: Public Archaeology Project

On October 14th-16th, 2011, there will be a public archaeology project conducted on the McDonald House in Otsego, MN. The McDonald House was constructed in the 1850s by one of the first European settlers in Wright County. The house is set to be demolished, so the Otsego Heritage Preservation Committee is taking this unique opportunity to gather and document as much information about the original structure as possible. Previous probes indicate that there is material buried on the lot, waiting to be excavated and rediscovered. Sign up to participate in the dig and documentation. Space is limited (priority will be given to Otsego residents), so sign up soon! See more information about this opportunity, click here. This event is also listed on our Events page.
