The First Field Season

The First Field Season

(p.59) Chapter 5 The First Field Season
New Philadelphia

Paul A. Shackel

University of California Press

Everyone in the community was excited with the work toward developing a more in-depth understanding of the growth, development, and eventual demise of New Philadelphia. During the first field season, the excavations were started in the southwest corner of block 9, lot 5. The geophysical survey did not show a strong anomaly in this place where the Clarks and Butlers lived; however, an overlay of the 1939 aerial photograph reveals the remains of a building in the southwest corner of the lot. Betsy House was a small house that was abandoned by the 1930s. Block 3, lot 4 is another area where a large concentration of domestic artifacts had been found. The first field season located undisturbed features existing below the plow zone, some of them related to the early settlement of the town and others dating to the very late part of the century.
