An Archeological Hike in Our Backyard
Rain Delay Date: Sunday, November 3rd
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Location: We meet at Jones Tavern to start the hike.
No fee - Donations are welcome.
As the first part of an Open House double-feature Iron Work Farm will celebrate Massachusetts Archaeology Month with a hike through South Action's historic Mill Corner. Archeologist Kimberley Conners will lead us as as we explore 'hidden' clues to the town's past.
The 1 1/2-mile walk will start at Jones Tavern, 128 Main Street, at 11:30 p.m., and visit historic industrial sites from the early 18th-through the mid-20th centuries. We will discuss the features that remain that allowed South Acton to be the home of mills, factories, and a regional railroad junction.
We will use sidewalks as well as unpaved surfaces during our walk, so please wear the proper footwear.
Where and how to find us:
Faulkner Homestead - 5 High St. Acton, MA
Jones Tavern - 128 Main St. Acton, MA
Parking is available on site or nearby.
