(p.92) Chapter 7 The Apple Festival and National Significance
New Philadelphia

University of California Press

The Barry Apple Festival featured members of the McWorter family as representatives of the community's founder. Terry Martin suggested that the McWorter family members first meet at the archaeology lab at the Illinois State Museum before the festival, so that the goals and products of the first season's work at New Philadelphia could be explained. Racism had taken its toll on the New Philadelphia landscape. The McWorter family was interested in knowing more about Pike County. At the end of the field season, the archaeology team found several foundations related to the McWorter residence. They were all pleased that the University of Illinois team located the remains of parts of the complex once owned by Squire and Louisa McWorter. The physical remains are nice evidence of the McWorter family's being part of the town site. Key places and artifacts were found to help support the stories of education and freedom.
